As part of its global ESG platform and Earth Day launch, Outrigger Hospitality Group is continuing the Green Seal certification process at seven of its owned and managed properties in Hawai’i, as well as its resorts in Fiji and Mauritius.
This follows Outrigger’s recognition by the Hawai’i Green Business program for outstanding environmental stewardship.
Outrigger is the first in the state of Hawai’i to commit to earning the prestigious Green Seal sustainability certification for its properties as well as the first hotel brand to pursue certification outside of the United States. Outrigger expects the properties to be Green Seal certified before the end of 2022.
The 100% Green Seal designation will further reinforce Outrigger’s allegiance to upholding the highest standards of health and environmental protection for its guests and hosts.
For more than 30 years, the global non-profit organization Green Seal has helped accelerate market adoption of safer and more sustainable products and services. Its certification is based on a rigorous and independent assessment of the hotel’s characteristics, operations and processes.
“As the Outrigger brand continues to grow and evolve, we are keenly aware of the opportunity to have a positive impact on our planet,” said Jeff Wagoner, President and CEO of Outrigger Hospitality Group.
“Green Seal is the benchmark for global health and environmental leadership; Outrigger is proud to implement science-based standards in our hotels and resorts that raise the bar for sustainability.
Participating Hawai’i properties include: Outrigger Waikiki Beach Resort, Outrigger Reef Waikiki Beach Resort, Outrigger Kona Resort and Spa, Waikiki Beachcomber by Outrigger, Waikiki Malia by Outrigger, OHANA Waikiki East by Outrigger and Embassy Suites by Hilton Waikiki Beach Walk. Internationally, Outrigger Fiji Beach Resort, Castaway Island, Fiji Resort and Outrigger Mauritius Beach Resort are all moving forward in meeting the rigorous evaluation criteria to achieve Green Seal certification.
