Plan a sustainable stay in downtown Victoria
From the start, The Parkside Hotel & Spa has put sustainability at the forefront of its operations. The property was built with sustainable intentions, and each and every team member you meet makes up their collection of warm, inclusive, and caring staff. As certified Global Green Key leaders, all elements of a stay have been carefully thought out with a sustainable mindset. From diverting waste from landfills and collecting rainwater to partnering with local organizations like Surfrider Foundation, which is dedicated to the protection and enjoyment of our oceans, waves and beaches, a stay at The Parkside means a holiday that promotes environmental sustainability.
In 2016, the hotel began measuring its Greenhouse Gas Emissions with Synergy, providing annual reports to understand its footprint. Later in 2019, The Parkside became carbon neutral, furthering its sustainable practices to enhance the guest experience, all while ensuring the operation treads as lightly as possible on the environment. While supporting various projects with Offsetters, the hotel has offset the impact of its emissions by preventing the equivalent number of emissions from being released elsewhere.
Spearheaded by General Manager Trina White, the team at The Parkside continuously works to build on each of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations to learn how to better their business practices and future by facilitating a plan for each goal.
Helping educate others, hotel and beyond, The Parkside’s website features an updated record of sustainable initiatives and resources for all to view, further providing inspiration, innovation and intention. Their Go Green Stay provides special savings and a getaway that is gentler on our planet when opting out of full housekeeping, for stays of two or more days.
From the moment you walk through the doors, The Parkside Hotel & Spa provides an exemplary downtown stay in the heart of Victoria. With green spaces and waterways just steps from their doors, you’ll find yourself immersed in nature’s beauty during your stay. With two out of their three core values connecting directly to sustainability and carbon-neutral initiatives, all aspects of your visit, from check-in to departure, are fueled by environmentally friendly operations.
