The Westin Ottawa

The Westin Ottawa works to incorporate sustainability into all aspects of its business. From separating organic waste to switching incandescent for LED lighting, the hotel is incorporating a wide range of initiatives to reduce their environmental impact.

Building on previous successes, in 2014 The Westin Ottawa signed on with Bullfrog Power, choosing 100% clean, emissions-free electricity for its lobby and elevators, and 100% green natural gas for its fireplace.

Other sustainability initiatives include:

  • Installing an efficient chilling operating plant, reducing the energy required to cool the hotel
  • Switching to a bank of energy efficient high-rise elevators
  • Completing an LED lighting retrofit
  • Supporting a 12-person environmental committee with one representative from each department to educate and motivate the hotel’s associates
  • Providing guests the option to decline housekeeping as a means of conserving water, energy and other resources
