IHG Hotels & Resorts, one of the world’s leading hospitality brands, has named Verdant as an approved vendor for connected thermostats. Under IHG’s new guidelines, all thermostats in newly constructed and renovated guestrooms must be replaced with networked occupancy-sensing thermostats by November 2025. This initiative represents a significant step toward reducing energy consumption and carbon footprint across IHG’s extensive portfolio.

As a prominent supplier since 2014 and a partner of IHG Studio since 2019, Verdant has already established a strong presence within the IHG family. Verdant’s energy management thermostats have been successfully deployed in hundreds of IHG hotels across all brands.

Michael Serour, General Manager of Verdant, expressed his enthusiasm in the partnership, stating, “We are thrilled to be working closely with IHG, and to be a part of their overall sustainability vision. Verdant is installed in hundreds of IHG hotels today and has a proven track record of delivering significant energy savings.”

Verdant’s thermostats are equipped with occupancy sensors that accurately detect when a room is vacant to prevent the HVAC system from running unnecessarily. Hotels can reduce HVAC runtime by up to 40% with the implementation of Verdant’s energy management solutions.

“We are wholly committed to the IHG partnership, and to helping make IHG hotels more sustainable, without compromising guest comfort,” added Serour.
