East Bay Hilton paves the environmental way

by Alfie FEATHERSTONE on December 30, 2011

The Hilton Concord Hotel, situated in San Francisco’s East Bay, is paving the way by incorporating both environmental and sustainable systems as part of its multi-million dollar renovation, which is tipped to be completed at the start of 2012.

Currently, the hotel is operated and also owned by Interstate Hotels & Resorts, America’s largest global management company. The Hilton Concord, in addition to being redesigned, will re-establish itself as a leading example to hotels on how they can successfully intergrate programs that are able to reduce waste or conserve natural resources in a sustainable manner.

At a press conference, the hotel’s General Manager, Jack Hlavac, explained that the renovation will allow the Hilton Concord to become a product of remarkable design and contemporary upgrades, while also giving itself an opportunity to make a positive impact on San Francisco’s environment through instituting sustainable practices that will reduce waste and pollution, in addition to reducing its carbon footprint.

The Hilton Concord’s renovation will see it reconditioned to specifically promote waste and will launch innovative recycling programs that also aim to see the amount of energy currently used by its guests eventually reduced. As well as this, guestroom bathrooms are also to be rennovated and upgraded, while food and beverage services are improved.
