Potawatomi Hotel & Casino

Through numerous green initiatives, Potawatomi Hotel & Casino has become one of the premier sustainable developments in Milwaukee. In May 2015, the 19-story, 381-room hotel with 55,000 sq. ft. of meeting space became the first casino hotel in Wisconsin to attain the prestigious LEED® Gold certification. The LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) rating system, developed by the U.S. Green Building Council, ranks buildings on how well they save energy and water, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve indoor environmental quality.

One of Potawatomi Hotel & Casino’s most visible and impactful contributions in Milwaukee over the last several years has been the construction of a biodigester, located just west of the casino property. The biodigester converts large amounts of food waste to energy – including energy used to heat the casino’s hotel property.
