By: Oak Brook Hills Resort
June 2, 2014 - PRLog -- To achieve the goal of becoming a premiere resort in the United States, the management and staff of the Oak Brook Hills Resort (3500 Midwest Rd, Oak Brook, IL) believes in being a leader economically, environmentally, and socially. Ownership and management alike are committed to designing, building, and managing innovative and sustainable hotels and resorts to protect the natural environment and respect local communities. With these goals in mind, the Oak Brook Hills Resort joins the Green Business Bureau, a national membership organization that uses an online assessment to certify green businesses.

Oak Brook Hills Resort makes a conscious effort to conserve resources throughout daily operations with each department providing environmentally benign products and services of local origin. Preference is given to environmentally responsible service suppliers, and the business chooses to hire locally whenever possible. Oak Brook Hills Resort is committed to not only meet existing environmental laws and regulations, but also going beyond the status quo to seek new techniques and approaches.

“We believe that the growth of Oak Brook Hills Resort along with Portfolio Hotels & Resorts depends on the ability to minimize or eliminate impacts on the resort’s surroundings and local environment,” General Manager Stefan Mühle says. “We make a conscious effort in protecting this environment as the company’s future and the future of the environment are interconnected.”

The standards for providing an eco-friendly environment at Oak Brook Hills Resort includes personal responsibility through staff and management’s daily actions, ongoing participation in continued training, and the initiative to acquire knowledge of new standards. The resort is a member of the Green Hotels Association as well as a Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary, which preserves and enhances wildlife habitat and protecting natural resources.
