The Essentials of Being an Eco-Friendly Hotel

What makes a hotel attract guests? An excellent location is one thing on the top of the list. Customers also favor hotels with top-notch facilities, hospitable staff, and affordable rates. In recent years, with the rise of intelligent clients, people are also choosing hotels that are eco-friendly. With the latter, if you have a hotel, how can you demonstrate your concern to the environment? Read on and find out! 

Reduce Water Waste 

From hotel laundry to the showers, the hotel’s management must come up with innovative ways to minimize the amount of water that it’s using. Take note that water is a limited resource, which makes it critical to save it. Having low-flow pipes and having laundry equipment that uses less water are some of the best ways to reduce water consumption. There should also be means to recycle rainwater, especially in large hotels and resorts. 

Conserve Energy 

Lights, water heaters, and air conditioning units, among other things, consume the most electricity in hotels. If there is an on-premise laundry, washing machines and dryers can also contribute significantly to electricity consumption. The hotel should choose more energy-efficient appliances. For instance, consider industrial laundry equipment that can be provided by Continental Girbau. It will also be good to switch to LED lights, which are longer-lasting and more energy-efficient. Solar heating can also be good, especially for the swimming pool. 

Improve Food Preparation 

It will also be good if the hotel will source its food from local farms that are recognized for sustainable practices. There should also be rules implemented to minimize the amount of food that goes to waste. In hotels, common sources of food waste include spoilage, kitchen error, and plate waste, among others. The management must create strategies for better kitchen and food management to reduce waste. 

Use Technology 

There are also several tools that can help hotels in their initiatives towards environmental sustainability. For instance, in a report from the Los Angeles Times about how hotels are going green, it has been noted that Intercontinental Hotel Groups planned to equip its 4,700 hotels with an online tool that will be accessible to managers, providing them with real-time information on the amount of energy that is used in a specific property. Through such analytics, it will be easier to implement policies for the good of the environment. 

Educate Employees 

All of the initiatives of the management will be useless if the employees are not knowledgeable about how they can be properly implemented. With this, they should invest in training the members of the workforce and let them know how they can act in such a way that they will help the hotel demonstrate its concern for a better environment. 

In sum, to have an eco-friendly hotel, the management must conserve energy, reduce water use, be more intelligent in its food preparation, and educate employees. Through these actions, the hotel can build a better name by showing its clients how it values environmental sustainability.
