Crestline always strives to be recognized as a strong global citizenship partner and good neighbor.
Each year Crestline associates spend thousands of hours contributing to their local communities. Associates are encouraged and recognized for sharing their talents to help improve their neighborhoods, volunteer in schools and raise money for worthwhile community organizations. In addition, Crestline corporate meetings are accompanied by a service day, where associates from throughout our hotels gather to make a difference as part of Crestline's corporate stewardship.
Crestline works in conjunction with each of its hotels, and in its corporate offices, to seek-out and implement sustainable practices. In 2008 Crestline launched EarthPact a comprehensive green initiative program that uniquely addresses sustainability across multiple disciplines including: Administration; Food & Beverage; Facility Management; Conferences & Meetings; Owner Relations; Public Relations; and Rooms Operations. EarthPact accomplishes this objective by incorporating a rating scale and enabling hotels to work towards excellence in sustainability throughout the property's operations. Best Practices for sustainability are shared among properties encouraging all to strive for excellence.
In addition, several Crestline managed hotels have been recognized for their environmental efforts, including Emory University Conference Center Hotel in Atlanta, GA. This hotel is the first LEED-silver conference center hotel in Atlanta, and the only hotel in Georgia with a single stream-recycling system. Crestline's corporate offices in Fairfax, VA are LEED Silver certified with design elements that include: a water management systems on toilets and faucets; recycled materials in carpets; energy efficient lighting; low/no VOC paint; bio-friendly cleansers and soaps; and recycled paper used for collateral and printed materials.
