The Sustainable Hospitality Committee launched “Green Voice” in 2012 as the sustainable educational brand for NEWH. The success has been tremendous. Conferences around the country are looking to include Green Voice Conversations in their programs.

“Green Voice can bring together people from a variety of disciplines to create a unique conversation that appeals to everyone’s environmental common sense.”—DAVID MAHOOD

“When you come to a Green Voice seminar you are going to be hearing from experts in the field. I always come away from a Green Voice session with new insights and ideas that I can apply to my work.”—GARY GOLLA

Materials Full Disclosure

While many products now claim to be certified, free of  approved, and/or otherwise green, healthy and sustainable, we want to discuss the particular challenges of hospitality design, including relatively rapid refresh cycles, and explore how to distinguish between which products are actually green in the ways that matter for our industry and not just greenwashed.
