NAPLES, Fla. - Hilton Naples today announced that it has been accepted as a Platinum level GreenLeader in the TripAdvisor GreenLeaders program, which helps travelers worldwide plan greener trips by highlighting hotels engaging in environmentally-friendly practices.

TripAdvisor GreenLeaders properties have met a set of environmental standards developed for TripAdvisor by a leading environmental consulting firm with input from expert partners. The more green practices a hotel has in place, the higher its GreenLeader level, which is shown on the property's listing on the TripAdvisor site.

"This recognition is the result of the environmental stewardship practiced by every member of our Hilton Naples and Shula's Steak House team," said Clark Hill, general manager, Hilton Naples. "We are proud to have achieved the Platinum classification for our green practices, and we will continually seek ways to reduce our carbon footprint even further."

A few of the green initiatives at Hilton Naples include recycling bins in guest rooms with recycling sorted by the staff, waste recycling throughout the hotel, a linen and towel reuse program, energy-efficient light bulbs and ENERGY STAR® rated appliances, laundry machines, pool heater and windows. In addition, guests are educated on green practices before and during their stay and the hotel staff is trained on implementing green practices.

Travelers can now search for accommodations that have TripAdvisor GreenLeaders status on the TripAdvisor site and view a detailed list of environmentally-friendly practices that they can expect at each location.

"The TripAdvisor GreenLeaders program recognizes the properties around the world that are committed to environmental sustainability," said Ryan Dillon, manager of responsible travel at TripAdvisor. "We applaud these businesses, from the smallest B&B to the largest hotel chain, for helping to make eco-friendly trips possible for our community of millions of travelers."

The TripAdvisor GreenLeaders program was developed in consultation with the United Nations Environment Programme, the U.S. Green Building Council and ENERGY STAR®, among other leading environmental organizations. For more information, please visit www.tripadvisor.com/GreenLeaders.
