It has been said that we do not inherit the earth from our fathers, we merely borrow it from our children. With that thinking in mind, Delaware North Companies created GreenPath® – a formal, documented, comprehensive environmental preservation plan that covers just about everything we could think of to preserve and protect our natural resources. GreenPath is woven into everything we do - from contributions to environmental organizations to employee volunteerism. It is our way of making sure that our treasures are available for generations to come.
With Hospitality and Stewardship in Special Places as our mission, we set about to define for ourselves, our clients, our guests and even our competitors what “stewardship” could be all about. It was in this spirit that, in 1999, Delaware North set out to accomplish something no other U.S. hospitality company had ever done: have its environmental management system registered to the standards put forth by the International Organization for Standardization.
Although we were proud to be charting a new environmental path for our national parks, the primary reason we pursued ISO registration for GreenPath was that we understood the organization’s strict standards would provide us with an important management tool. (ISO requires that all components of an active management system be reflected throughout the organization for effectiveness.)
ISO14001 is the international specification for environmental management systems (EMS). This organization specifies requirements for establishing an environmental policy, determining environmental aspects and impacts of products, activities, services, planning environmental objectives and measurable targets, implementation and operation of programs to meet objectives and targets, checking and corrective action, and management review.
GreenPath® is firmly in place at all of our eco-friendly hotels and travel destinations, where ISO 14001 registration is continually renewed through in-house and third-party audits.
