Inspired by our beautiful home city, Fairmont Waterfront’s green practices within the hotel and into the neighbouring communities rank as a ‘5 Green Key‘ Hotel and a ‘4 Green Key Meetings‘ Hotel by Green Key Global.
For the past 25 years, Fairmont Hotels & Resorts has been committed to protecting its local environments through its award-winning Fairmont Sustainability Partnership.
Our third floor terrace is buzzing with action – four beehives and over 250,000 honeybees. Moving on up – We’ve upgraded our mason bee house to a full-fledged pollinator hotel in our rooftop garden – the ‘Bee and Bee’ provides habitat for the hundreds of species of solitary bees (our super pollinators) native to British Columbia.
Fairmont Waterfront is proud to be an original member of the Ocean Wise program and encourages guests to select from the many sustainable options on our menus. Ocean Wise is a conservation program created to educate and empower consumers about the issues surrounding sustainable seafood.

Our culinary team has partnered with local fishermen and farmers who share our passion and commitment to the environment. From organic wines, to our very own rooftop honey, and herbs, guests can be assured sustainability is our number one priority.
Fairmont Waterfront invites event planners to minimize the ecological footprint of their meetings. Options include local and organic menus, disposable-free service, and carbon-neutral, eco-friendly hotel options. Event planners can request that food leftovers be donated to a local charity.
Fairmont Waterfront diverts its waste away from landfills by recycling, composting, donating, and repurposing as much as possible. We work closely with RecycleSmart to track and monitor our diversion efforts.
