Parkside Hotel & Spa Joins Beyond Green

Since opening in 2009, The Parkside Hotel & Spa has been a pioneer in promoting sustainable tourism in Victoria.

A Green Key Global leader and Biosphere Certified, all elements of the hotel have been carefully thought out with a sustainable mindset. From diverting waste from landfills to partnering with local organizations like Surfrider Foundation Vancouver Island, The Parkside was the second Carbon Neutral hotel in British Columbia’s history and recently received Climate Positive certification, continuously building on each of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Situated in the heart of Victoria, just steps from the inner harbour and conference centre, The Parkside Hotel & Spa offers inviting meeting venues with multi-sensory experiences including expansive green areas and natural light, accessible indoor and outdoor spaces, and unique floor plan options.

General Manager Trina White said: “We’re excited to not only be the first urban hotel in the world to join Beyond Green, but also its first member hotel in Canada. Beyond Green is a global portfolio of hotels, resorts and lodges that represent sustainability in action and impact which aligns with our core commitment to sustainability, treading as lightly as possible on the environment.”

The Parkside Hotel & Spa works with many like-minded Victoria partners and suppliers. From Truffles Catering, and their commitment to innovation in environmental stewardship, to eco-friendly Silk Road Tea and fair trade, organic coffee by Level Ground, the hotel strives to source locally.
