Schneider Electric: My Energy University; Energy Solutions for Hotels
Susan Hartman, Manager, Global Customer Education Programs
David Reed, Director, Energy Services, Schneider Electric
I encourage you to use My Energy University as a free learning tool and reference; and to think of Schneider Electric for the myriad of services that they provide.
Greening Hotel Restaurants
Michael Oshman, President, Green Restaurant Association
The Green Restaurant Association has certified many hotel restaurants, including those at The Colonnade and InterContinental Boston. In addition, the GRA has the best list of green restaurant standards in the industry. I encourage you to review them for ideas about cutting energy, water, waste and toxins; and green products.
Electrolyzed Water: Why it is Good for You
Patrick Lucci, Managing Director, Lynnfield Green Technology
One of the things that strikes me about these cleaning products is that some hotels use them for almost every purpose. Besides being safe, they eliminate the need to transport cleaning supplies to your building, and they eradicate waste.
