Hôtel du Vieux-Québec was chosen by Eco-Parenting magazine as one of its Ecoparent picks. Owner Justin Keating was interviewed for the article:
What would you say are the top 3 green accomplishments of your property?
In 2009 we became the first hotel in the province of Quebec and the second in Canada to become Carbon neutral. After being inspected that year we were also given a 5 Green Key rating by the Hotel Association of Canada – the highest rating possible.
In 2010, Hôtel du Vieux-Québec won the ‘Award of Excellence for Energy and Environment’ from the Hotel Association of Canada. This was the first time the award went to a Hotel in the province of Quebec and was a great accomplishment for us.
This year we were awarded the ‘Green Leadership Award’ by Hotelier magazine in recognition of initiatives we have taken to protect our environment.Download PDF
