Numerous organizations that study the phenomenon of climate change, such as the United Nations, the Center for Energy and Climate Solutions, NOAA Climate.gov and the US Environmental Protection Agency, come to the same conclusion:
Climate change is a global problem. Greenhouse gas emissions have not only increased over the previous 70 years, but continues to be on an upward trend.
The development of tourism is respectively linked to the increase of water and energy consumption and the production of waste. Inevitably, the hotels’ operation is burdened with increased greenhouse gas emissions, contributing to the acceleration of climate change.
The EcoHotel Plus platform takes into account all the above needs and offers to hoteliers a comprehensive and innovative tool to calculate, monitor and reduce the hotels’ energy and carbon footprint.
As the global market shifts towards more sustainable practices, more and more travelers are looking for eco-friendly accommodations.
According to Booking.com’s Sustainable Travel Report 2022, 46% of travelers worldwide chose to stay in a sustainable accommodation at least once in the preceded year of the survey, while 78% of travelers state that they intend to stay in a sustainable accommodation at least once on their travels in the next year.
By adopting sustainable practices and promoting their eco-friendly credentials, hotels can attract more customers and remain competitive in a volatile market.
EcoHotel Plus offers solutions for hotels that want to reduce their energy and carbon footprint while meeting the demands of travelers and by helping them ensure a sustainable future and attract more customers.
