Verdant, a leading energy management solution, announced a strategic partnership with Preferred Hotels & Resorts, effective 2024. This collaboration designates Verdant as a “preferred member” within the Preferred Hotels & Resorts’ network, expanding its market reach by granting direct access to decision-makers at Preferred member branded properties. It also supports their network of hotels in achieving their sustainability goals while maintaining the highest standards of guest comfort.

Preferred Hotels & Resorts, renowned for its curated portfolio of independent luxury hotels, maintains high standards of excellence. Every member hotel complies with the Preferred Standards of Excellence™, guaranteeing outstanding guest experiences through annual independent inspections.

Balancing Sustainability with Guest Experience

Verdant’s smart thermostats leverage intelligent technology to learn occupancy patterns and individual preferences. This allows for automatic temperature adjustments that maximize energy efficiency while ensuring a comfortable environment for guests. This translates to substantial reductions in energy consumption and carbon footprint, along with lower operational costs for PHR hotels.

“We’re thrilled to partner with Preferred Hotels & Resorts,” said Michael Serour, General Manager of Verdant. “It aligns perfectly with our mission to create sustainable living environments through innovative technology. We’re confident that our energy management solutions can seamlessly integrate into their diverse portfolio.”

Commitment to Collaboration

“Sustainability and guest comfort are both essential priorities for hotels,” added Serour. “Our partnership with Preferred Hotels & Resorts ensures a smooth path for member hotels to fulfill their sustainability commitments and elevate guest comfort simultaneously.”

The initial focus for Verdant will be on empowering Preferred-branded hotels across North America, with potential global expansion in the future.
