Hospitality industry has gone through the toughest decade in its history. But it is also a fact that we have witnessed great advances for good, such as better facilities, more services and diversified offer, new concepts or access to amazing remote locations. Hospitality is truly an industry of people for people and, as such, is rising from the ashes after a harsh period of pandemic. But the impact of this tourism global growth also has an impact in the environment and local communities. It is at this point that it is so important to be sensitive as well as professional.
Profitable sustainability is possible.
The industry has been quick to respond to tourist behaviour changes and is progressively turning ‘green’. Major hotel players within the hotel sector such us Hilton Worldwide, Intercontinental Hotel Group, Marriott, Starwood, Melia, Bahia Principe or Carlson Rezidor to name a few, regularly publish their sustainability reports and share the different measures that they are implementing to reduce their carbon footprint.
Sustainability is a lot more than environmental management, it is also about economic progress, social development and local communities support.
