He is an environmental advocate and passionate about all things hotel, resorts, and restaurants. Leaders in hospitality know that reducing their business’ carbon footprint is important. While embracing energy efficiency and conservation help to reduce overall energy demand, renewable energy programs are needed to reduce the impact of mandatory energy expenditures. But making the switch to renewables is not an intuitive feat. If you are struggling to make your hotel business more sustainable, here are five ways you can save money, drive sales, and retain guests with renewable energy programs.THIS WEEK’S CONTRIBUTOR:

Green Key Global (GKG) is an international certifying body that works with 1,600 hotels worldwide to rate their sustainability programs in an effort to increase their occupancy, save them money, and reduce carbon footprints. Together, we explored the sustainability and energy challenges facing the industry, specifically in the fields of waste, water, and energy. Not only did we pinpoint current barriers for hoteliers and other industry professionals, but we also provided steppingstones to benchmark and solve them.

ESG Reporting in Hospitality

Seventy percent of travelers believe that action needs to be taken now toward more sustainable choices in their accommodations. Because of that, every boardroom in the hospitality industry across America is discussing how to incorporate the critical topic of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) into their annual planning and operations. In this presentation, we cover:

  • The importance of ESG in hospitality
  • The fundamentals of an annual ESG report
  • Current standard practices based on industry benchmarking
  • Best practices to move forward on a positive impact journey

APTIM’s thorough assessments synthesize waste, water, and energy consumed by operations. After collecting this valuable data, we work with you to plan, manage, and hopefully minimize environmental impact as well as negative social impacts.

Clean Energy for Hospitality

Seventy-eight percent of travelers want to reduce their energy consumption. Solar roof arrays and parking canopies, wind power, and battery storage are just a few of the energy efficiency efforts taking the hospitality industry by storm in response to this prominent customer demand. In today’s day and age, clean energy is becoming a clear economic and environmental advantage in the hospitality industry. This webinar covers:

  • Demystification of the high costs of energy efficient upgrades
  • Energy reduction trends within the industry
  • Steps and best practices for hoteliers to reduce energy costs
  • Relevance of rapidly changing electric vehicle charging infrastructure for hospitality
