In 2011, our Marriott Vacation Club brand committed to 
enroll all of its properties in Audubon International’s Green 
Lodging Program. Audubon International is an international 
conservation and environmental education organization. 
The Green Lodging Program provides third-party verification 
that hotels and lodging facilities have met environmental 
best practice standards and have demonstrated a strong 
commitment to water quality, water conservation, waste 
minimization, resource conservation and energy efficiency. 

In addition to the Green Lodging Program, Marriott 
Vacation Club also participates in the Audubon Cooperative 
Sanctuary Program for Golf, which is an award winning 
education and certification program that helps golf courses 
protect our environment and preserve the natural heritage 
of the game of golf. By helping people enhance the valuable 
natural areas and wildlife habitats that golf courses provide, 
which improves efficiency and minimizes potentially harmful 
impacts of golf course operations, the program serves as 
a vital resource for golf courses. Marriott’s Grande Vista 
and Marriott’s Shadow Ridge were the first two resorts to 
be designated as Green Resorts by Audubon International, 
and these two resorts also achieved certification in the 
Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program for Golf.
