The environment is important to Sheraton Lincoln Harbor Hotel, so we have made some changes to show we much care. Our Weehawken hotel recently underwent a revitalization in an effort to become LEED Certified, the distinctive green building designation awarded by the U.S. Green Building Council. Sheraton Lincoln Harbor Hotel has achieved a Silver Certification for Commercial Interiors (CI) from LEED.We are the first LEED CI Silver Hotel in NJ and the only LEED CI Silver Sheraton in the United States We're proud to share with you the list of enhancements completed to make your experience more environmentally sound and more comfortable too!
- Lighting in guest rooms and corridors is 20% more efficient than that required by code.
- Over 68% of all electronic equipment installed during the revitalization was ENERGY STAR labeled, significantly reducing the electricity consumption.
- Guest room air conditioning equipment was replaced to provide additional fresh air to our guests.
- 88% of the new wood used in the product revitalization was certified by the Forest Stewardship Council, an independent organization that promotes sustainably harvested wood.
- Over 96% of construction waste and debris was diverted from landfills.
- Over 40% of new materials used in the revitalizations originated from the region (500 mile radius from project).
- Over 10% of the materials used in the revitalizations are recycled, reducing pressure on virgin materials.
As a result of installing low-flow plumbing fixtures, our Weehawken hotel is projected to save over 500,000 gallons of water annually. The dual-flush toilets located in your bathroom are responsible for much of those savings. We now practice single-stream recycling for five waste streams: paper, corrugated cardboard, glass, plastics, and metals.
