Why do more customers choose green hotels? And how can you make one?
In a world where the climate is changing, how can a hotel building be transformed to net zero carbon? Is it even possible?
1. Research by Natural Climate Change, published in 2018, found that tourism’s global carbon footprint was four times higher than previously estimated, accounting for about 8% of global greenhouse gas emissions.
2. In fact, some of the biggest hotel chains have already adopted sustainable strategies to control their environmental impact.
3. Research by the Sustainable Hospitality Alliance found that the hotel industry needs to reduce its carbon emissions by 66% per room by 2030, and by 90% per room by 2050.
