Green Initiatives at Wing Creek
Wing Creek Resort, located in the heart of an incredibly beautiful part of BC, is known for its natural setting and pristine environment. We are committed to environmental preservation on every level and have created our resort to ensure environmental sustainability and to attract owners and guests who appreciate and support our values and mandate.
Since 2004, Wing Creek Resort has made a concerted effort to follow accepted green standards and has made every effort to minimize the environmental impact of our business; from design and construction through to our Vacation Rental Management Program and resort operations. Our initiatives enable us to operate an environmentally friendly resort and provide an authentic Canadian vacation experience to guests from all over the world.
We pledge to continue our focus on keeping Wing Creek Resort a Green Retreat as it expands into a Green Community. Our designs of buildings, facilities and amenities each take the environment into account, as does every aspect of our operations. Our green practices also ensures that we do not negatively impact watersheds or wildlife.
Environmental steps include reduced use of:
- all materials from construction materials to paper
All new construction at Wing Creek is being designed to be LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) certified. The Birchgrove, our first newly constructed home, is on track for LEED Gold certification. LEED is a third-party certification program and an internationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction and operation of high performance green buildings. As an internationally recognized mark of excellence, LEED provides building owners and operators the tools they need to have an immediate and measurable impact on their buildings’ performance. LEED promotes a holistic approach to sustainability by recognizing performance in five key areas of human and environmental health:
- sustainable site development
- water efficiency
- energy efficiency
- materials selection
- indoor environmental quality
Wing Creek Resort offers free on-site EV charging for guests of the resort. We also offer a 20% discount on accommodations for EV drivers and a 10% discount on accommodations for hybrid drivers. Thank you for your environmental choices!
We live and operate our business in one of the most beautiful pristine environments on earth. We take our responsibility to sustainability very seriously. We are proud to be taking a leading role in the sustainability movement in an area that already prides itself on environmental leadership.
