Resources Conservation at the Seaport Boston Hotel
Seaport participates in a number of energy saving programs:
- EnerNOC’s DemandSMART program which provides utility operators with additional capacity during peak demand times as participants, including Seaport, curtail non-essential energy use.
- Amenico’s local program produces a range of renewable products from collected cooking oil. Grease from Seaport’s kitchen traps is collected once a month, recycled and turned into home heating oil. This fuel is used throughout New England.
- Seaport’s toilets have all been retrofitted from 1.6 gallons per flush to 1.28 gallons per flush, saving an estimated 200,000 gallons of water per year. The old toilets were re-purposed and sent to Jamaica, Nicaragua and Haiti.
