LEED Silver Certified
LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design. It is a prestigious certification system that recognizes the best sustainable building practices and design. It was created in 1998 by the US Green Building Council to provide owners and developers with a criterion to achieve a green building rating. Green buildings are designed to reduce the overall impact of the built environment on human health and the natural environment.
The Axiom Hotel San Francisco was evaluated by the LEED building design and construction rating system. Within this system the buildings were rated by 5 credit categories: Sustainable Sites, Water Efficiency, Energy and Atmosphere, Materials and Resources, and Indoor Environmental Quality.
California Green Lodging Program
The California Green Lodging Program acknowledges and certifies environmentally conscious hotels in the lodging industry, as well as encourages state and local government travelers to seek out and give preference to these certified “green” hotels. By traveling green, government travelers divert waste from landfills, and conserve energy and water as they conduct business for the government entities; thus, reducing the carbon footprint for travel and supporting California's green initiative.
