Environmental Action at Grand Canyon National Park
At Xanterra Parks and Resorts, operator of Grand Canyon National Park Lodges, we believe that there are few more important – or more complex- tasks ahead of us than that of reaching an ecological balance between business and the natural environment.
We are a company based upon values that reflect an environmental ethic and social conscience – for the long term. We are taking the lead in this call and are implementing comprehensive environmental initiatives. Xanterra’s business practices exemplify environmental stewardship, and a desire to protect and preserve the public lands on which we operate.
Our business decisions balance economic viability with ecological responsibility
We reduce and recycle waste, conserve energy and water, and educate our guests and employees on environmental stewardship
We believe that increasing the sustainability of natural systems is not just good business—it is the right thing to do.
Single-Stream Trash & Recycling
As Grand Canyon National Park and its partners, including Xanterra work toward the goal of reducing trash destined for the landfill, we have been changing the way we manage our waste streams. Grand Canyon National Park has been changing, too. As of October 31, 2016, the park has moved to a single stream trash and recycling program. All trash and recycling is to be placed in the same container, and it will be sorted later at Norton Environmental in Flagstaff. The exception is the restaurants where we have been asked to continue separating trash from recycling.
This program is likely to change and adapt as Grand Canyon National Park learns what works, and what does not. Our guests can be assured though that recycling efforts are continuing.
Balance Between Business and Environment
At Xanterra South Rim, L.L.C. we believe that there are few more formidable – or more complex tasks ahead of us than that of reaching a balance between business and the natural environment. Ultimately, our planet’s – as well as our very own well-being depend upon the continued health of natural systems. Click here to see our 2016 Consumption Report.
Our environmental efforts can generally be divided into two categories:
Sustainability – what we do to develop the most environmentally sound resort operations. Actions identified in our comprehensive Environmental Management Plan address:
Energy and water conservation
Improving the World Around Us – what we do to support and promote environmental protection, activism, and preservation outside of our operations. As we improve the environmental footprint of our operations, Xanterra South Rim, L.L.C. remains attentive to the world beyond our boundaries. We have taken action through:
Our local clean-up days
Our fish policy to protect threatened species
Our energy reductions to reduce regional air pollution and protect the atmosphere
Our employee volunteer program
We know that our commitment to the environment is ongoing, will take constant work, and will always need improving. Simply, we know we’re not perfect. But we will continue to strive to protect natural resources, taking steps toward protecting the quality of life for our guests, our employees, our children – and the entire planet
