Tourism Partners Win Big at the 10th Annual Maryland Green Registry Leadership Awards

On May 20, Catherine Batavick, Project Manager, OTD, attended the 10th Annual Maryland Green Registry Leadership Awards held at the annual conference of the National Association of Environmental Professionals at the Lord Baltimore Hotel in Baltimore. Presented by Maryland Department of the Environment Secretary Ben Grumbles, the Awards recognize the top five member organizations that have shown a strong commitment to sustainable practices, measurable results, and continual improvement. OTD is proud to announce that four out of the five winners are in the tourism industry. Congratulations to the Baltimore Convention Center, the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum, the Inn at Horn Point, and Founding Farmers Restaurant Group. In addition, Pearlstone Retreat and Conference Center was designated as a member of the 2019 Maryland Green Registry Leadership Circle by demonstrating their commitment to continued improvement through significant new sustainable practices and results.

Please be sure to notify OTD’s Casey Keyfauver if your property receives certification, or include the information on your Destination Maryland application. If your company wants to get started in greening your organization or is looking to push your environmental program to the next level, we encourage you to join the Maryland Green Registry.
