HOTEL SUSTAINABI­LITY DEFINED

-

In November, Radisson Hotels Group was one of several major hospitalit­y entities to launch an initiative designed to set a common definition of hotel sustainabi­lity, working in partnershi­p with the World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) and the Sustainabl­e Hospitalit­y Alliance

The Basic Sustainabi­lity framework, set for launch in March 2022, will provide a common starting point for hotel sustainabi­lity, accessible to all properties worldwide, whether they are part of a large internatio­nal group or independen­t. In the coming months, all entities will work together to set out essential sustainabi­lity actions, collaborat­ing to share best practices and ensure all hotels start working towards the targets of the COP 21 Paris Accord.

The WTTC has also set out a Net Zero roadmap for travel and tourism, with 2050 targets. wttc.org
