Our Green Pledges
The Langham, Boston values the importance of preserving our indigenous community and vulnerable environment for future generations by operating our hotel responsibly. This belief is essential to our sustainability commitment and is ingrained in the day to day practices of our offices and hotels.  

Since 2008, The Langham, Boston implemented two programs, the "Guests of the Earth" and "Green Team", to invite our guests and colleagues to join us in taking proactive steps to protect the environment. Our property also partners with the EarthCheck Program, which provides credible third party validation and certification services on our environmental performance. Together with our stakeholders, we continue our journey towards sustainability.
