The hotel is working with Green Seal, a non-profit group that certifies environmentally sound products and practices. Green Seal president Arthur Weissman said getting the certification requires careful tracking by a restaurant or hotel. “Looking at the energy it uses, the water it uses, any of the waste that it produces, the chemicals that it uses,” he said.
这家旅馆正与绿色封条组织合作,这个非盈利性组织专为环保的产品和业务颁发证书。绿色封条主席 Arthur Weissman说一家餐厅或旅馆想要得到证书需要严格的跟踪检查。“检查能源的使用,水源,所有造成的浪费和使用的化学品。”

Weissman said the Hilton LAX is meeting the standard for Green certification.
Weissman说希尔顿酒店满足绿色证书的标准。

Green Seal certifies a range of products, in addition to services like hotels.
除了像酒店的服务外,绿色封条会给很多东西颁发证书。

“We do paper products, cleaning products, paints, other building maintenance products. We do windows - we also do windows,” said Weissman.
Weissman说:“这些东西里有纸质的,清洁用具,建筑维护,甚至还有窗户。”

Weissman said, today, green practices are good for business, but there are more important reasons for going green. He has written a recent book exploring the issues.
Weissman 说,如今环保的业务有助于商业发展,但提倡绿色环保却不仅仅是这个原因。他在最近出版的书里探讨了这个问题。

“I call them moral values, our care and concern for others. Other people, other nations, and indeed other species,” he said.

他说:“我认为它们有道德价值,它们显示了我们对其他事物的关心,其他人,其他国家,甚至其他物种。”


Weissman said most businesses and governments have not yet modified their wasteful and polluting practices. “But I hope ultimately they will, because they'll see it's in their best interest to do that, that we're all here together - all the stereotyped images of the spaceship earth, but it's all true. We're all in this world together and we all have to survive in it together.”
Weissman说大部分的企业和政府都没有改正有浪费和污染的产业,“但我希望他们最终会改变,因为他们会看到这样做会带来最大的利益,因为我们是一个整体—一个地球上随处发生同样事情的整体,但这些都是真的,因为我们要在上面生存下去。”

He said the stakes are high - our well being and the health of our planet.
他说我们所做所为和地球的健康都占有极其重要的部分。


Local leaders here agree. Los Angeles has implemented a green business and lodging program in partnership with Green Seal and other organizations.

当地领导也表示同意。洛杉矶已经和绿色封条和一些其他组织实行了绿色商业和住宿计划。
