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
