More green facts from Doubletree Hotel San Jose:
Doubletree Hotel San Jose is a member of the Hilton Family of Hotels, which has committed directionally to the following reductions within operations by 2014:
• We will reduce our energy consumption by 20%.
• We will reduce our Co2 emissions by 20%.
• We will reduce our output of waste by 20%.
• We will also reduce our water consumption by 10%.
We have implemented two huge water saving programs at our property this past year
The WeatherTrak Smart Water Management solution system monitors weather trends in our specific area such as humidity, cloud cover, rain and wind. It then electronically alters our water control system here on property via data line, thus only watering when necessary.
Doubletree Hotel San Jose was one of the first businesses to partner with Santa Clara Valley
Water District on their new water saving toilet installation program. The new toilets use 1.28 gallons per flush (gpf) compared to the old 3.5 gpf toilets. We have approximated that the program will save more than 10,800 gallons per day which comes out to 4,000,000 gallons per year. This is nearly equal to six Olympic-sized swimming pools!
