Brooklyn, New York (April 24, 2013) – Hotel BPM Brooklyn today proudly announced it has been accepted as a Silver level GreenLeader into the new TripAdvisor® GreenLeaders™ program, which helps travelers plan greener trips by identifying environmentally-friendly accommodations across the U.S.
As a designated TripAdvisor GreenLeader, Hotel BPM has met a set of environmental standards developed for TripAdvisor by a leading environmental consulting firm, with input from expert partners. The more green practices a hotel has in place, the higher its GreenLeader level, which is shown on the property’s listing on the TripAdvisor site.
“It has always been my goal to maintain a high level of service and luxury with the most eco-friendly products, practices, and efforts possible.” said BIJAL, founder and visionary of Hotel BPM. “To be recognized for our efforts from one of the world’s most visited and well-respected travel sites, is a real honor.”
Travelers can now search for accommodations that have a GreenLeaders status on the TripAdvisor site, and view a detailed list of environmentally-friendly practices that they can expect at each location. From the air conditioner units and lighting to the in-room amenities, Hotel BPM continues to make great strides to be “green.”
“TripAdvisor GreenLeaders are leading the hospitality industry in making efforts to improve their environmental footprint,” said Jenny Rushmore, director of responsible travel at TripAdvisor. “We greatly applaud these accommodations and are pleased to share their eco-friendly practices with our online audience of more than 200 million travelers.”
The TripAdvisor GreenLeaders program was developed in partnership with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s ENERGY STAR® program, the U.S. Green Building Council, and the United Nations Environment Programme.
