Energy tracking software, energy management systems and purchasing local food are a few of the ways the Madison Concourse Hotel and the Governor's Club commit to sustainability.
 
The Madison Concourse Hotel joins over 350 Travel Green Wisconsin certified events, attractions, and destinations.
 
"We're thrilled to recognize The Madison Concourse Hotel and Governor's Club for sustainable practices that lead to Travel Green Wisconsin certification," said Tourism Secretary Stephanie Klett.
 
"The variety of innovative practices the hotel has implemented is impressive and continues to raise the bar and serve as an excellent role model for other businesses," said Klett.

The hotel asks that guests reuse linens and towels to help their efforts.
