Our Commitment to Sustainability


YWCA Hotel is passionate about protecting the environment and committed to becoming a sustainable organization. Our goal is to achieve a reduction in our energy usage and in our greenhouse gas emissions.

Over the past few years, we have integrated a variety of green practices into our operations:

  • A waste reduction strategy to increase recycling and reduce garbage output
  • Retrofit of the YWCA Hotel, including working with the BC Hydro Power Smart Program to:
    • replace all refrigerators and install energy efficient lighting, saves 30% electrical energy through reduced consumption
    • install a new boiler system that will cut green house gas and carbon emissions by 75%, switches energy sources to clean power so greatly reduces GHG production
    • install low-flow showerheads to reduce water consumption and waste water treatment
  • The use of Green Seal approved products, which are 100% recyclable
  • A recycling program in the workplace
  • The use of recycled or post-consumer recycled paper products in our print materials
  • Participation in the Translink Employer Transit Pass Program
  • Education and awareness campaigns directed toward staff and guests

By taking these measures, YWCA Hotel has embarked on an ambitious goal to become a leader in sustainable community development and a model for sustainable businesses.
