World Environment Day with Vancouver Aquarium

June 4th, 2024

World Environment Day is a day to encourage worldwide awareness and action to protect our environment. In celebration of World Environment Day and in collaboration with the Vancouver Aquarium, children staying at Fairmont Pacific Rim in a Fairmont Gold Suite will receive an eco-friendly sea otter plush.

Fairmont Pacific Rim and Vancouver Aquarium are both committed to reducing the environmental impact of the natural environments surrounding us.


Fairmont Pacific Rim is dedicated to reducing our environmental impact and addressing plastic pollution in the world’s oceans and natural environments. In our first year of operation, we proudly received the 5-Green Key rating and have since made positive environmental changes in every department.

As part of our ongoing commitment to sustainability, we have removed all non-essential single-use plastics from our guest experience, including in guestrooms, dining areas, the spa, and public spaces. This accomplishment has been verified by GreenStep Solutions Inc., based in British Columbia.

Fairmont Pacific Rim has also recently implemented the Orbisk Food Waste System, a groundbreaking technology that will revolutionize our approach to managing food waste.


Vancouver Aquarium is at the forefront of implementing environmentally sustainable practices to reduce their impact on the environment and wildlife. This includes managing energy usage, waste generation, and procurement of goods.

All disposable dishware, utensils, and food waste at the Aquarium Café are composted and transformed into Class A compost used to cultivate certified organic alfalfa and hops in British Columbia’s Lower Mainland.

The gift shop at Vancouver Aquarium offers an array of sustainable products, like reusable straws, bottles, and utensils, along with a diverse selection of sustainable alternatives to everyday items, including natural rubber bath toys and bamboo-based dishware for children.

Their commitment also extends to energy conservation, strategic chemical management, water conservation, and eco-friendly transportation.


Elevate your experience around the backdrop of Canada’s Pacific Northwest and enjoy up to 10% off as well as complimentary breakfast, a seasonal selection of afternoon snacks, evening canapés, honor bar, access to the private Gold Lounge, as well as parking for stays through December 31, 2024.
