Sustainable Design and Construction

Fairmont Hotels & Resorts is committed to environmental protection and sustainability. As part of this commitment we have a set of comprehensive performance based standards that streamline the work of our partners (developers, architects, engineers and operators) in delivering state of the art, sustainable and profitable Fairmont branded operations.

We support and encourage green building and design within the industry, before it becomes a legislative requirement, and guarantee sustainability not only from an economic point of view, but from an ecological and ethical approach. The environmental laws and the construction legislation in each country form the basis for general construction; our proposed program provides guiding principles and sustainability standards from Design and Construction through our daily operations.

The Design and Construction and FF&E Design Standards address environmental and sustainable design practices using nationally recognized rating systems, including the current edition US Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) as well as numerous other internationally recognized green rating standards (e.g. BREEAM, CASBEE, Estidama, Green Star, Three Star, SBAT).

By incorporating environmental considerations in our design and construction process, we strive to improve the quality of the hotel environment for colleagues, guests, and local communities. These considerations shall be implemented from the concept design of the project throughout the installation and opening of the actual project in both new developments and renovation projects. Our standards effectively address and proactively prepare our stakeholders for sustainable design, construction, and operation of our brands, providing a balance between the industry recognized practices and innovative emerging concepts.

Example is our Fairmont Pittsburgh hotel LEED Gold.
