Programs and Chapters

StayGreen Program
The StayGreen Program was launched by IHLA in 2008 to recognize its hotel members that proactively utilize eco-friendly products, programs, and energy to reduce their impact on the environment. Once hotels earn the StayGreen designation, they are provided with various outlets to market themselves as a green-minded hotel, giving them a competitive advantage with more exposure to and business from meeting planners and leisure travelers who prioritize eco-conscious hotels.
