Fairmontís Green Partnership Program
Sustainable travel is important in order to minimize industry's impact on the planet, and for more than 20 years, Fairmont's Green Partnership Program has been the company's award-winning environmental program focused on minimizing the impact of hotel operations on the environment. Three Fairmont hotels in British Columbia have announced the installation of Electric Vehicle (EV) charging stations, in partnership with GE Energy Industrial Solutions. The Fairmont Waterfront in Vancouver led the hotel group in early adoption of GE Dura charging Station EV, with The Fairmont Hotel Vancouver and The Fairmont Empress in Victoria announcing their participation soon after. The hotels will make the charging stations available both to guests and other travellers in the area. Drivers can simply swipe a card, plug in and charge their vehicles at the stations. The hotels have also announced a new incentive for guests who arrive at the hotel in hybrid or electric cars: complimentary valet parking for the duration of their stay. (Also for local diners in the hotel restaurants). The DuraStationís design is suitable for various locations and offers Level II charging, which is capable of reducing charging time from 12-18 hours to just 4-8 hours.
