STOCKTON, Calif. - Hilton Stockton, the city's largest hotel, received the unique distinction of becoming the first hotel in Stockton to achieve Green Sustainable Business Certification at the annual Greater Chamber of Commerce REXPO event March 14, 2012. Demonstrating environmental leadership in operations and purchasing, the suburban Hilton Stockton reduced their environmental impact and improved sustainability in accordance with stringent guidelines set out by Green Team San Joaquin and the REACON (Recycling Energy Air Conservation) in order to obtain the coveted certification. This certification confirms that Hilton Stockton complies with the environmental and performance requirements of the REACON Certification Program.

Hilton Stockton underwent an extensive "greening" of the property in 2011-2012 as all team members joined in to reduce the hotel's overall carbon footprint. To qualify, a hotel must demonstrate sustainable practices in the following areas: waste minimization, reuse & recycling; energy efficiency, conservation & management; management of fresh water resources; waste water management; hazardous substances; and environmentally sensitive purchasing. Certification requires an initial evaluation including an on-site audit of the property, and annual monitoring to ensure ongoing compliance. Here are just some of the many initiatives now in effect at Hilton Stockton to reduce the hotel's environmental impact as a Green Sustainable Business:
