Delta Chelsea Hotel.
The Delta Chelsea Hotel, in downtown Toronto, has offset 109-per-cent of its annual carbon footprint, as recognized by the LivClean Eco-Stay Program.
For 2009, the property purchased 7,845 tonnes of carbon offsets from emission-reducing projects, with all of the contributions made by the Delta Chelsea Hotel certified by the Canadian Standards Association.
On the Delta Chelsea’s behalf, LivClean invests in environmental projects around the world, and in Canada, that remove or reduce greenhouse gases.
Under the LivClean Eco-Stay programme, hotel guests are asked to donate $1 plus GST upon check-out, with those funds returned to LivClean to purchase carbon offsets on the hotel’s behalf.
Since implementing its environmental initiatives in 2005, the Delta Chelsea has reduced emissions by 64 per cent.
