With more than 4.6 million hotel rooms in the U.S., lighting is a major investment for all hotels, brands and owners—and as a central element of design, it has a substantial impact on the guest experience and the environmental footprint of a hotel.
"We are delighted to have Van Teal join the HSP Index program,” said JoAnna Abrams, CEO of MindClick, in an announcement. “By integrating sustainability into many aspects of how lighting is designed, produced, distributed and used, Van Teal and others can produce beautiful, design-focused products that also use resources more efficiently and help hotels achieve their sustainability goals.”
Van Teal’s participation in the HSP Index marks the fifteenth supplier category to be represented in the Index. The other categories represented are: architects and designers, art and mirrors, carpets, case goods, drapery fabricators, fabrics, faucets and fixtures, LEDs, linens, logistics, mattresses, purchasing companies, and seating.
In 2011, the Hospitality Sustainability Purchasing Consortium was created to establish an agreed upon framework and single source reporting system for the sustainability of suppliers and their products. The resulting HSP Index reflects the input of twenty-eight Consortium members including industry leading brands, suppliers, architect and design firms, purchasing firms, and the USGBC.
Twenty-nine organizations are now part of the Consortium, including suppliers, leading brands, architects, purchasing firms, and sustainability consultants.
