Certified Green Business!
BWRS Client Certified San Francisco Green Business
In January 2018, the InterContinental Mark Hopkins hotel was recognized as a San Francisco Green Business. The Biagini Waste Reduction Systems client is the largest hotel by square footage and second-largest building in San Francisco to receive this recognition. The Mark Hopkins hotel works with the SF Department of Environment to maintain and improve their practices in waste management, pollution prevention, conservation, water management, and energy efficiency.
Mark Hopkins has been working with San Francisco’s Recology and also with Biagini Waste Reduction Systems. Biagini provided Mark Hopkins audits, trained their staff, and helped implement new practices in waste sorting. The 187 tons of trash diverted from landfills per year is enough to take nearly 95 cars off the road.
“The InterContinental Mark Hopkins is proud to be recognized by the City of San Francisco for our green efforts,” says General Manager Maarten Drenth. “At nearly 91 years old, we are an example that it does not matter how old a building might be—anyone can operate green if the team is committed. We are looking forward to continuing to challenge ourselves to be more efficient and sustainable across the entire property.”
