"The global travel and tourism industry is expected to grow approximately 2.8% during 2012" - David Scowsill, president and CEO of the World Travel & Tourism Council. This assessment, in conjunction with supporting data about the industry's growth, indicates an expected 4% growth for hotels and tourism for the next ten years.
In Tuesday’s meeting, we explore the role of hotel sustainability and green initiatives within this resilient industry. How has the role of environmentally friendly business practices grown alongside and within hotels and tourism? We will pinpoint the incentives, returns, sources of funding, and common challenges related to introducing sustainable and energy efficiency measures via a data-centric and case study intensive look at how both customers and hotels have become increasingly eco-conscious.
