GreenPath: Yosemite Environmental Programs

GreenPath®  Environmental Management System
Mule Deer
Delaware North at Yosemite embraces the environmental responsibilities that come with operating the lodging, retail and food outlets, recreational activities, and transportation system in a beautiful natural treasure like Yosemite National Park. That’s why we created GreenPath®, an extensive environmental management system that guides our business decisions so that we minimize our operational impacts on the environment.  From extensive waste reduction programs and water conservation measures to guest-wildlife interaction education and employee volunteerism, it's woven into everything we do.

GreenPath, which took root right here in Yosemite following Delaware North receiving the park’s concessions contract in 1992, was registered by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in 2001; Delaware North was the first hospitality company and the first park concessioner in the United States to receive this registration.

"We share our concern for the fragile nature of the park. We continuously look for ways to minimize the impact of our business on the environment. We play an active role in supporting the National Park Service's resource management process."
