American Standard Joins Hospitality Sustainable Purchasing Consortium

November 4, 2011

The Hospitality Sustainable Purchasing Consortium (HSPC) recently announced that American Standard Brands has joined as a Founding Member. With more than 4.5 million hotel rooms in the U.S., the products that American Standard produces can be major investments for all hotels, brands and owners. As an element of in-room bathroom design, they also have a substantial impact on the guest experience and the environmental footprint of a hotel.

“Increasingly, hotel guests, as well as property owners and developers, are demanding products that conserve water without sacrificing performance,” said Michele Hudec, vice president of Product and Business Development for American Standard Brands. “We are looking forward to working with other industry leaders, via the Consortium, to establish the performance criteria that helps make it easier to incorporate sustainable products throughout the hospitality industry.”

Twenty-five organizations comprise the Consortium, including more than a dozen industry-leading suppliers, brands, architects, designers, purchasing firms and sustainability consultants.
