California Parks Company partners with Sustainable Travel International

The California Parks Company is a leading concessionaire working in local, state, and national parks throughout California. In an effort to continue to improve its services and develop a stronger understanding of its sustainability footprint, the organization chose to partner with Sustainable Travel International and enroll into the STEP Sustainability Management System (SMS).

As of December 2013, The California Parks Company has already enrolled four of its sites into the STEP SMS program. Through the program, The California Parks Company Green Team Leader is able to record natural resource consumption, purchases, and customer feedback for all four selected operations to better understand daily, month, quarterly and annual operations related to key sustainability performance indicators.

Additionally, The California Parks Company is currently developing internal documentation in support of effective sustainability management that will result in their own certification to the STEP Eco-Certification standard.

"We chose Sustainable Travel International to assist us in achieving our sustainability goals because STI is the leader in sustainable hospitality industry. Sustainable Travel International proved they have the experience to help us develop a holistic sustainability management strategy that is appropriate for our complex variety of operations. The training and support from Andrew Grossmann and the rest of the team, has made the process a fantastic experience. I look forword to continue working with them as we move through the STEP certification process." -Grant Roden, Director of Environmental Resources, The California Parks Company
