B. F. Saul Green Hotels
“Going Green” is more than just a fad… it is essential to our success as a company, our role in corporate responsibility, and our collective well-being as a planet.
We believe that environmental sustainability means good business! That’s why the B. F. Saul Company Hotel Division is proud to be a leader in “greening” the hospitality industry in the United States and beyond. We have been acknowledged and awarded with some top environmental recognitions, including the Department of Environmental Quality and Virginia Green Lodging.
In addition to being Virginia Green Certified we have received the first annual Marriott “Spirit to Preserve” award. This prestigious award recognizes Marriott franchisees that are committed to operating environmentally sustainable hotels.
The B. F. Saul Company Hotel Division is equally committed to environmental conservation through the “Our Big Green” initiative, not just because we believe it is good business practices but because it is our, and everyone’s, responsibility. Based on our Our Big Green Mission Statement and Our Big Green Pledge, the foundational pillars of "Our Big Green" are Conserve, Recycle, and Act Now!
We believe that it is imperative to conserve the resources we have by using them more efficiently and choosing products that reduce waste.
We understand that waste is unavoidable so we make concerted efforts to recycle as much as possible and use products that are environmentally friendly like biodegradable pens.
We feel it is important not only for our own team members to think green but to be leaders in the community and teach others what they can do to help the environment. “Our Big Green” mascot OBG helps by going to local schools and organizations to promote environmental awareness as well as energizing our own team members to act now and “Be Green.”
