Doyon, Limited is proud to announce that Kantishna Roadhouse, a wholly owned Doyon subsidiary, was recently awarded gold-level Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification by the U.S. Green Building Council. The LEED certification process is designed to inspire organizations to seek out innovative solutions that support public health and the environment while saving owners’ money over a building’s life cycle.
As part of the process of receiving LEED certification, Kantishna Roadhouse established a recycling program and installed new windows, LED lighting and low-flow appliances, amongst other improvements.
“Our goal for operations at the Kantishna Roadhouse has always been to uphold Doyon’s mission of protecting and enhancing our land and resources, and to practice the Doyon value of being socially and culturally responsible in how we do business,” said Kantishna Roadhouse general manager, Marie Monroe. “The gold LEED certification validates our hard work over the years and acknowledges that we are on track with our efforts to be good stewards of the land. We are proud of this accomplishment, and we will continue to strive to do more and do better.”
