Corporate Responsibility

Did you know that we’re Biosphere committed? That means we have made eco-conscious decisions and changes in everything we do, from a robust recycling program, EV chargers, and bulk amenities, to LED lightbulbs, eco-friendly cleaning products, and new high-efficiency water heaters.

Air conditioning is also quickly becoming one of the major polluters throughout the Canadian Summer. As a part of our commitment to environmental sustainability,  we have elected to implement eco-conscious solutions instead of air conditioning to keep things cool. We encourage you to utilize the fans provided in-suite, leave drapes closed during the sunny Victoria days, and open windows in the evening when temperatures naturally lower outside. These measures are tried and tested by the Oswego Team; we are confident that these measures will ensure a cool and comfortable stay.

Biosphere Committed

We show you the path to sustainability.

In BIOSPHERE SUSTAINABLE, you will be able to create your own Biosphere Sustainability Plans, adapted to your needs and possibilities, always in a SIMPLE, INTUITIVE, and EXCITING way.

We’re excited to announce that we now are Biosphere Certified! As of June 2023, the hotel has achieved the Responsible Tourism Institute’s Biosphere certification which aligns with 17 sustainable development goals of the United Nations in areas that include climate change, environment, social, economy and culture. We are eager to be a part of the sustainable biosphere network, as The Oswego Hotel will continue to grow and excel in creating and ensuring the best in green practices. Our local tourism organization @tourismvictoriabc has done some phenomenal work in bringing this initiative to Victoria!
