Fairmont Hotels & Resorts is a leader in sustainability and was one of the world's first hotel companies to embrace environmental stewardship. The luxury hotel brand has expanded this commitment to include economic, environmental, and social programming through its Fairmont Sustainability Partnership. With the goal of improving the overall well-being of local communities where Fairmont does business, the program focuses on key areas to achieve change. Building on the brand's environmental platform, once described by National Geographic Traveler as "the most comprehensive environmental program in the North American hotel industry," ongoing global initiatives include reductions in energy and water consumption, waste generation and carbon emissions, sustainable practices related to design, proactive construction and procurement policies, as well as community outreach through local groups and partnerships. In 2015, Fairmont became the first hotel company to reduce its operational CO2 emissions by 20 per cent below 2006 levels as part of the WWF Climate Savers Program.

WORLD-RENOWNED GOLF & SKIING
Created by famous designers like Stanley Thompson and Robert Trent Jones Sr. and Jr., Fairmont’s visually stunning and technically challenging golf courses are consistently top ranked. In 2014, five Fairmonts including Fairmont Chateau Whistler and Fairmont Banff Springs made the Top 100 list of SCOREGolf’s annual ranking to top golf resorts, while a year earlier Golfweek included courses at Fairmont St Andrews in Scotland, Mexico's Fairmont Mayakoba, Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge and Fairmont Banff Springs on a list of the world's best places to hit the links.
Fairmont’s mountain properties have long been a ‘cool’ spot to hit the slopes. In Canada, Fairmont Tremblant is a popular choice for those who love the charming French atmosphere of this mountain village, and all of Fairmont’s Quebec-based properties are an easy drive from classic slopes like Mont Sainte-Anne, Stoneham and Le Massif. Other favorites include Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise and Fairmont Banff Springs, which are cradled by three of the Canadian Rockies’ most popular ski resorts and offer some of the finest powder on the planet. Celebrity-favored Fairmont Chateau Whistler offers ski-in/ski-out access to world-famous Whistler Blackcomb, two adjoining mountains with over 200 runs offering terrain for every level of winter enthusiast. In the heart Colorado, Telluride’s Fairmont Heritage Place, Franz Klammer Lodge promises a world-class experience boasting some of the steepest, deepest and most diverse terrain of any ski resort in North America.
