Environmental Sustainability

We are committed to fostering the natural environment and minimizing our impact on the natural world. We believe that it is our responsibility to operate in a sustainable manner and to leave a legacy of environmental stewardship for future generations in the Keweenaw and beyond.

More specifically we strive to:

  • comply with all applicable environmental laws and regulations
  • reduce our carbon footprint by reducing energy consumption, using renewable energy sources, and implementing energy-efficient practices
  • conserve water by using water-efficient appliances and fixtures, and by recycling and reusing water whenever possible
  • minimize waste by reducing, reusing, and recycling materials
  • foster and enhance the natural habitats and ecosystems on our property
  • educate team members and guests about environmental sustainability and encourage them to adopt sustainable practices

We are proud of the progress we have made, but we know that there is still more work to be done. We are committed to continuing our efforts to protect the environment and to create a more sustainable future for all.

Some initiatives that we are working on as it pertains to environmental sustainability:

  • reduce our energy consumption by 10% over the next five years
  • increase our use of renewable energy sources to 50% of our total energy consumption over the next ten years
  • reduce our water consumption by 20% over the next five years
  • recycle 75% of our waste over the next five years
