Q: What environmental awards or recognitions has Signal Mountain Lodge received?
A: In 2003, Signal Mountain Lodge was certified to ISO 14001.

ISO 14001 is an internationally recognized standard for Environmental Management Systems (EMS).
The benefits of initiating an EMS in accordance with ISO 14001 standards are many: identifying areas for reduction in energy and other resource consumption; reducing environmental liability and risk; helping maintain consistent compliance with legislative and regulatory requirements; benefiting from regulatory incentives that reward companies showing environmental leadership through certified compliance with internationally recognized EMS standards; preventing pollution and reducing waste; improving community good will; profiting in the market for "green" products and demonstrating commitment to high quality.
