Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach Resort & Spa (http://hyattregencyhuntingtonbeach. com) has officially 'gone green' after being named a Leadership Level Hotel, the highest level of program participation by The California Green Lodging Program. As a part of the state's Environmentally Preferable Purchasing efforts, The California Green Lodging Program was developed to provide travelers a green option for lodging by encouraging energy conservation and improved environmental consciousness.

"As an oceanfront resort, we are passionate about preserving the beautiful beach environment that surrounds us," said Cheryl Phelps, general manager of the Huntington Beach hotel (http://www. hyattregencyhuntingtonbeach. com/activities). "We are thrilled to be named to the Leadership Level and will continue to maximize our efforts to keep minimizing our carbon footprint."

Leadership Level Hotels are required to achieve a minimum field survey score of 300 and have written environmental policies in place that meet all seven of the California Green Lodging Program's criteria. The criteria includes but is not limited to recycling, energy efficiency, freshwater resource management, and hazardous materials management.

Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach Resort & Spa (http://www. hyattregencyhuntingtonbeach. com/news-events) is a member of the International Tourism Partnership which is dedicated to shaping tourism into a responsible, positive force for sustainable development, conservation and environmental protection. The Huntington Beach hotel and resort (http://www. hyattregencyhuntingtonbeach. com/services-amenities) makes a special effort to recycle materials like, cooking oil, batteries, light bulbs, glass, and aluminum.

In addition, Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach Resort & Spa has made it a priority to only use energy and electricity in rooms and meeting space when absolutely necessary.
