For Immediate Release – June 26, 2012 – Tucker, GA – We are pleased to announce that the Emory Conference Center Hotel received the “Good Earthkeeping, Large Property” Award from the American Hotel & Lodging Association (AH&LA) on June 13, 2012 at the InterContinental Houston during the AH&LA Summer Summit.
The award was presented during the AH&LA Achievement Awards, part of the annual Stars of the Industry Awards, which honor standout initiatives at hotel properties.
The hotel opened in 1995 and sits on 26 acres of forest preserve. Food waste is turned into gray water; waste oils are converted in bio-diesel and then used as fuel for transportation at Emory University; and they recycle over 41 tons of waste annually.
They are a proud member of the Green Hotel Association and actively participate in the Adopt-a-Stream program and Clean the World.
