200 Environmental and Social sustainability best practices & key ideas in the hospitality industry
As travellers’ concerns around environmental issues are growing every year, the role of sustainability in the hospitality industry has become a big topic. The hotel industry for example is now responsible for around 1% of global carbon emissions, and this number isn’t slowing down. To prevent the worst effects of climate change, the hospitality industry has to go much farther to help limit warming to 1.5°C. In fact, some of the biggest hotel chains have already adopted sustainable strategies to control their environmental impact. In this edition of our free 'Good practice Sustainability' series we give you 200 best practices & key ideas.
The hospitality industry needs to adopt sustainable consumption and production (SCP) modes, accelerating the shift towards sustainability. Tools to monitor sustainable development impacts for tourism including for energy, water, waste, biodiversity and job creation will result in enhanced economic, social and environmental outcomes. With this edition of our free 'Good practice Sustainability' series we support this goal.
