"Working with Constellation NewEnergy to match half of the hotel's energy demands is in perfect alignment with our commitment to sustainable and environmentally friendly practices," says Chris Mander, regional vice president and general manager of InterContinental Chicago. "In addition to furthering our own environmental goals, we see this purchase as setting a strong example for our guests, partners and peers in the hospitality industry."
