Chris Lane , Director of Environmental Programs,
Xanterra Parks and Resorts
Amfac Parks and Resorts, a National Park Service concessioner, has worked to improve the environmental aspects of its operations at National Park sites throughout the country, including the Grand Canyon National Park (NP), Zion NP, Yellowstone NP, and Mount Rushmore National Monument, employing environmental management systems. Starting with a corporate-wide commitment to environmental protection, Amfac followed words with action when it hired a Corporate Director of Environmental Programs. A company-wide Environmental Strategic Plan calls for the formation of 'Green Teams' at all sites. The potential environmental impacts of planned capital expenditures are now assessed in advance per a defined protocol.
