Grand Teton Lodge Achieves Certification
  Wyoming Travel News ( Press Release )

Grand Teton Lodge Company Becomes One of the First Wyoming Tourism Companies to Achieve Iso 14001 Certification for its Environmental Management System
Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming, USA: June 23, 2003: Grand Teton Lodge Company (GTLC), operator of lodging, restaurants and activities in Grand Teton National Park, has received ISO 14001 certification from the International Organization for Standardization for its Environmental Management System (EMS). The certification process was confirmed by the independent auditing firm National Quality Assurance USA, and the notice of certification was issued May 19, 2003.
GTLC is one of the first ISO 14001 fully certified tourism companies in Wyoming and one of the few national park concessioners to achieve this distinction. In order to be ISO 14001 certified, a company must have an EMS in place and integrated into all of its facilities, systems and programs. Key components include establishing an environmental policy, planning, implementation and operation of an ongoing program and an ongoing commitment to management review, corrective action and continual improvement.
Key values GTLC has identified include renewable energy; elimination of waste; protection of wildlife habitat and environmental education. In its EMS, the company focuses on eight areas: education, policy and communication; infrastructure improvements; energy and water; janitorial; land use; compliance; materials use and fuel management.
"Because we are entrusted as stewards of public lands within Grand Teton National Park, we have identified as a core mission of the organization to preserve and protect the environment of the park and to inspire our employees and visitors to sustain that natural environment," said John Rutter, senior vice president and chief operating officer of Grand Teton Lodge Company. "ISO certification is something all members of our company can point to as a validation of these environmental goals we have set."
Within Grand Teton National Park, Grand Teton Lodge Company manages lodging, restaurants, tours and activities at Jackson Lake Lodge, Jenny Lake Lodge and Colter Bay Village as well as the Jackson Hole Golf & Tennis Club in Jackson, Wyo., just outside the park.
