The Hotel Association of Canada (HAC) and CH2M HILL announced that the rebranding of the HAC`s nationally recognized eco-rating program is now complete. Known from this point forward as the HAC ECOmmodation Rating Program, the program was originally developed by the HAC back in 1997 to recognize hotels, motels and resorts committed to improving their fiscal and environmental performance.



The HAC ECOmmodation Rating Program is a graduated property rating system. Based on the results of a comprehensive environmental audit, hotels are awarded a one through five Key Rating and given guidance on how to unlock various opportunities to reduce operating costs and environmental impacts through reduced utility consumption, employee training and supply chain management.



Additional benefits include unique and increased marketing, sales and PR opportunities, increased guest appreciation and employee motivation.



Administered for the HAC by CH2M HILL, the HAC ECOmmodation Rating Program is a web-based program featuring on-line performance audits, `members only` services, instant eco-ratings, as well as a secure e-banking function. Cooperation with eco partners such as the Natural Resources Canada Energy Innovators Initiative and the Public Works & Government Services Accommodation Directory will provide equal opportunities for hotels of varying sizes in diverse locations across Canada help achieve eco-rating goals by promoting their properties to business leaders, meeting planners and guests.
