Increasing Sustainability Locally

In April 2017 the Indianapolis Marriott Downtown announced its participation in Indianapolis Power & Light Company’s (IPL) Green Power Option Program, which allows participants to specify an of their monthly electricity use to be generated by wind, a renewable resource. We have opted in to IPL Green Power Option at 10 percent, which will reduce more than 2.5 million pounds of carbon dioxide emissions.

The benefits for opting into an environmentally sustainable strategy position the Indianapolis Marriott Downtown as a market leader that is savvy in corporate social responsibility.
