DiamondHead Beach Resort is a proud member of the Florida Green Lodging Program!
The Florida Green Lodging Program was established in 2004 by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) with its main objective being to recognize and reward environmentally conscientious lodging facilities in Florida. The DEP encourages the lodging industry to preserve and protect Florida’s natural resources. The Florida Green Lodging Program is unique in that it covers an all-inclusive list of environmental initiatives that are specific to the Florida environment.
The lodging industry is one of Florida’s largest commercial sectors. In 2005, according to research conducted by VISITFLORIDA®, 83.6 million people visited Florida with about 50 percent of those staying in a hotel, motel or bed & breakfast. With this many visitors, the lodging industry can have a significant and positive impact on Florida’s natural resources.
