What is carbon footprint? What is carbon offset? How can Hospitality organizations calculate its carbon footprint?
Hoteliers representing more than 15,000 properties have agreed to adopt a standardized system for measuring carbon footprints that were set a year ago by two global tourism organizations looking to boost environmental awareness within the tourism industry.
Marriott International, Starwood Hotels & Resorts, Hilton Worldwide and InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) are among the more than 20 companies that will use the Hotel Carbon Measurement Initiative established in mid-2012 by the London-based International Tourism Partnership and the World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC).
