The HANYC Sustainability Awards

The HANYC Sustainability Awards is one of the key initiatives of the HANYC Sustainability Committee. Each year, the Awards identify and honor New York City hotels that are leaders in environmentally friendly lodging practices and socially responsible initiatives.

Launched in 2014, the Awards, developed with the help of Great Forest, a leading sustainability consultancy, has become a driving force in the hospitality industry, bringing attention to and promoting the crucial benefits of sustainability for people, planet, and profit.
