A HISTORY OF ENVIRONMENTAL AND SOCIAL STEWARDSHIP
In 2007, The Ambrose Hotel was the first in the United States to earn the prestigious LEED EB certification. We have never rested on our laurels, though, as we believe ongoing care for our planet is paramount and continually seek to improve our practices. Below is a description of our initiatives.
Industry Recognition and Ongoing Commitment
The Ambrose participated in Santa Monica’s Sustainable Works Green Business Certification pilot program in 2005 and was awarded the Sustainable Quality Grand Prize Award by the City of Santa Monica in 2006. We have maintained third-party audited certifications since then, earning the City of Santa Monica Green Business Certification, the state of California’s Green Lodging Program Certification, and TripAdvisor’s Gold Green Leader Certification. In 2017, the City of Santa Monica and Santa Monica’s Mayor Ted Winterer presented the hotel with a commendation for being one of the five pilot program participants of the city’s Green Business Certification. The Ambrose Hotel team is passionate about implementing green practices in everything we do, and we are committed to protecting the environment and preserving the earth’s precious natural resources for generations to come.
Since joining the HHM family in early 2017, The Ambrose Hotel has continued on its sustainable path, further encouraged by the company-wide EarthView Program HHM has in place. Moving forward, we intend to maintain our rigorous sustainable operations and maintenance program. All Ambrose team members practice an individual commitment to sustainability and are encouraged to take pollution control, waste management, energy consumption, recycled material content, and resource conservation into consideration.
In our environmental management program, The Ambrose Hotel has pledged to minimize operational impact and to fulfill this mission with continuous improvement in the areas described below.
