CARROLLTON, Texas — All 1,100 Motel 6 and Studio 6 properties in North America are set to be Green Key certified by the end of 2011.
The announcement from Dallas-based parent company, Accor North America, follows the program’s successful initiation at 21 Canadian locations.
“The Green Key program has been beneficial to our Canadian properties for several years and our participation in the U.S. pilot re-affirms the business and sustainability benefits of the program,” said Olivier Poirot, CEO of Accor North America, Motel 6 and Studio 6. “We are excited to see the positive impact it will have on all of our properties — corporate-owned and franchised — in the network.” The Canadian Hotel Association
of Canada and American Hotel & Lodging Association partner on the Green Key program, which ranks, certifies and inspects hotels and resorts in North America based on sustainable principles.
