Sustainability in hospitality

The water crisis is real

As consumer awareness around water scarcity and sustainability increases, hotels and resorts are uniquely positioned to be leaders in showing how businesses can grow sustainably, responsibly, and intelligently while still providing the same value to guests. Property owners and developers in the hospitality industry have the opportunity to make a powerful impact through water conservation efforts and to save big on water utility costs over time.

Amenities like swimming pools and laundry services in addition to cooling towers, water fountain features and landscaping, high water demand from hotels and resorts have a direct and significant impact on a building’s utility costs. Hotels and resorts that apply onsite water reuse solutions can experience substantial annual savings on water and sewage bills while improving the hotel’s sustainability profile.
