Hotel Sustainability: Top 3 Technologies to Implement in 2020

Before speaking about new technologies, I would highlight the fact that there is a huge need to monitor the consumptions (water and energy) AND to analyze these data AND to benchmark the results.

Who makes hospitality sustainability happen: Governments, Industry, Consumers?

This is a tricky topic with also differences depending on which side of the planet you are living. From my experience, I would think that the industry is in charge of improving and understand the sustainability impact of their activities as well as engaging the consumers.

Climate Emergency And The Hospitality Industry: Are We On Track?

Trying to widespread sustainability in the tourism industry for the past 15 years I should say that I'm a bit disappointed. I feel that the persons in charge don't even understand what greenhouse gas emissions means.
