Hotels to join hands to make tourism greener and cleaner and reduce carbon emission

Published on : Sunday, October 29, 2017

HotelsWhile there are many who love travelling, it’s a sad reality that going on vacation isn’t always eco-friendly. Besides the travel itself, hotels aren’t always the most sustainable enterprises. That’s why one of the largest hotel groups in the world is making their first worldwide commitment to being sustainable.

 
The International Tourism Partnership (ITP) will be working on issues like emissions and the youth employment crisis that is affecting the world. Their major goals will be parallel to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals for 2030.

 
Hotels under the Marriott, Hilton, and Wyndham umbrella among others fall into the International Tourism Partnership. They would be tackling four categories that are in the SDGs: youth employment, water, carbon, and human rights.

 
Through employment programs, the ITP plans to add one million for younger people who struggle to find jobs. Along with meeting education goals, it also provides quality work that leads to boosting the economy. ITP also focuses on human rights, which bring protection for those who work in the industry, including those that help construct new hotels. On an environmental scale, the hotels will also be reducing emissions and waste. This is something that both the hotel and its guests will need to work on. The global tourism industry is responsible for five percent of total carbon dioxide emissions in the world.

 

Hotels could fix this issue by limiting some of the amenities that cause this figure to rise and emphasizing on public transportation for guests.

 
Water usage is a significant problem for hotels, and there are a number of issues that could be addressed in this situation. For guests staying multiple nights, hotels can offer optional cleaning over the course of few days. Since procuring clean water is a major issue in some countries, limiting waste will now become a priority.
