Tourism is a resource-intensive industry that leaves a big footprint on the environment.  More and more European hotels are thus adopting environmental management schemes which add value regarding:

  • Legal compliance with environmental legislation;
  • The measurement and evaluation of environmental performance against objectives and targets;
  • Continuous improvement of that environmental performance;
  • Strong employee involvement;
  • Environmental core indicators facilitating comparison within and between organisations;
  • Transparent communication: Provision of information to the general public through the environmental statement;
  • Reliability: Independent verification.
