Miami Beach – CityDebate.Com
Cambean Hospitality, a Miami Beach-based hospitality group that owns and manages four boutique hotel properties in the historic South Beach area, today announced that they will soon be the most Earth-friendly, carbon neutral hospitality company in the world. Cambean plans to achieve this designation by installing solar panels and a wind turbine on the roof of the Clifton South Beach Hotel, and by purchasing carbon offsets and renewable energy credits (RECs) from Boulder, Colo.-based Renewable Choice Energy to offset Cambean?s fuel and electricity consumption.
?While many hospitality companies have embraced being ?Green,? their involvement, and the involvement of their guests, is purely a voluntary or opportunistic approach and is not mandated by corporate guidelines,? stated Brian Scheinblum, president of Cambean Hospitality. ?Cambean Hospitality, on the other hand, has quantified the carbon footprint for our entire portfolio of properties, and is mandating that we become carbon neutral. To that end, we?ve invested in the most progressive accounting, offsetting and renewable credit purchase program anywhere.?
