NPS, Environmentally Preferable Business Practices
Grand Teton Lodge Company (GTLC) continues to demonstrate their commitment to environmental stewardship at Grand Teton National Park and the surrounding community through a company-wide, ISO 14001 certified Environmental Management System. To promote environmental awareness and involve employees, park visitors, and the local community, GTLC maintains many partnerships and educational programs. GTLC remains one of Jackson County's largest recyclers and supports Jackson Community Recycling by sponsoring electronics recycling, fluorescent lamp recycling, and serving on the recycling board. In order to advance renewable energy use and conservation, GTLC partnered with Lower Valley Energy to champion the commercial availability of wind-generated power in Wyoming. In cooperation with Grand Teton National Park, GTLC uses biodiesel in all trucks and buses. GTLC actively supports the efforts of Teton County Weed and Pest to abate noxious weeds. GTLC also partners with the Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics to deliver nature-based training to local community schools and employees.
