Wyndham Worldwide has received Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver certification from the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC).

The LEED Green Building Rating System is the USGBC’s leading ranking classification for designing and constructing the world’s greenest, most energy-efficient and high-performing buildings.

The company’s headquarters meets LEED standards for energy use, lighting, water and material use and also incorporates a variety of other sustainable strategies including the use of recycled materials throughout the building, as well as paints, carpets and furniture. The facility was designed, built and operates following LEED’s sustainability practices and is powered by wind, purchased from an energy company, and runs energy efficient lights and appliances.

“We are honored to be recognized by the USGBC for our commitment to preserving our natural resources,” said Holmes. “As a global company that interacts with over 150 million consumers annually we can make a profound impact in protecting our Earth. This includes preserving natural habitats, preventing pollution and educating our employees, franchisees, partners, and customers on how we can collectively continue to make a positive difference in sustainability.”

The USGBC’s LEED certification is one aspect of Wyndham Worldwide’s overall commitment to corporate social responsibility and the environment. The company’s Wyndham Green program has six areas of focus including: Energy Conservation, Water Conservation, Recycle/Re-Use, Education, Community and Innovation.

Wyndham was named to Newsweek’s Green Ranking as one of the top 100 greenest companies in America and was just recently announced as a finalist in the USGBC’s fourth annual “Building a Greener New Jersey” award, which will be announced on 20 May 2010. Wyndham Worldwide is one of three finalists in the Corporate Commitment category.
