Green Hospitality and Real Estate Whitepaper
Ernst and Young have just released a fairly good report called Hospitality going green.
It reports on how the ‘green’ movement has affected the hospitality industry, and what the lodging sector has done to incorporate sustainable elements into their business models
Its well written and gives a good introduction for someone who wants a wide intro level understanding of global trends. The sections on the developing world were well done, but the European section is a little light.
In terms of certification it mentions in detail the excellent GreenGlobe and Leed systems but it does not discuss the other major systems or standards. I guess this is for a latter report.
Its good to see that the major consultancies are now “helping the cause” and writing about the business case of “going green”.
In summary – its only 16pages and worth the read
