Travel Green Wisconsin

The Landmark Resort is proud to be recognized by the Wisconsin Environmental Initiative with their Travel Green Wisconsin certification.

Why choose a Travel Green Wisconsin certified business?

Travel Green Wisconsin has its roots in Wisconsin's heritage. A traveler is following the principles of Wisconsin's John Muir, Aldo Leopold and Gaylord Nelson.

The Travel Green Wisconsin certified businesses are working hard to do their part in protecting our environment for today and future generations. Investing in them means an investment in a sustainable future. Certified businesses offer an opportunity to learn about sustainable practices that you can also apply in your own home.

To earn certification, the Landmark Resort had to supply the Department of Tourism with a Baseline Environmental Performance Assessment. The baseline collects information about the amount of energy, fuel, water, and solid waste that the resort consumed during the last calendar year. Next, the resort had to commit to enough sustainable business practices found within the Travel Green Wisconsin checklist to accumulate 30 or more points.

These practices include:  
*  Communication and Education (Customers, Employees, Public)
*  Waste Reduction, Reuse, and Recycling
*  Energy Efficiency, Conservation, and Management
*  Water Conservation and Wastewater Management
*  Air Quality
*  Wildlife and Landscape Conservation and Management
*  Transportation
*  Purchasing
*  Local Community Benefits

To create a program comprehensive enough to be relevant across the very diverse tourism industry, the Wisconsin Department of Tourism decided to allow participants to be "ecopreneurial" and adopt the practices that make the most sense for their operation. Applicants are required to reach a minimum of 30 points to earn Travel Green Wisconsin certification, five or more of those points need to be achieved in the "Communication and Education" section.

The Landmark Resort is proud to be upgarding all air conditioning units in 2013. These high-efficiency units will provide greater comfort to guests, and use less energy.
