We at the Super 8 of Monroe are concerned about the community where we do business. We are committed to continuously evaluating our operations to set goals and take specific actions towards environmental, social, and economic sustainability. This process involves a long term commitment to benchmark our present situation, set goals for improvement, achieve those goals, and then repeat the process looking for new opportunities.

As part of this program we hope to reduce our overall environmental impact. To do this we as a business benchmarked the following areas of our operation to document our current measurable environmental impact:

  • Solid waste—landfill, recycled, overall cost
  • Energy consumption—natural gas and electricity
  • Water consumption
  • We are the only hotel in Wisconsin to be certified by Energy Star. We scored 95 points out of a possible 100!

In the future comparisons can be made to check improvements. Based on our current situation the following improvement plan has been initiated.
