Hotel Chains Seek Carbon Measurement Consensus
Carbon measurement metrics vary widely within the hotel industry, and the number of methodologies and tools in use can make transparency within the industry difficult to achieve, according to trade bodies the International Tourism Partnership and the World Travel & Tourism Council. The Carbon Measurement Working Group, formed by the ITP and WTTC, was formed to address these inconsistencies and inefficiencies.
Phase one of the project aims to have an agreed set of standards ready by 2012.
Other hotel chains involved in the working group are Accor, Fairmont Hotels & Resorts, InterContinental Hotels Group, MGM Resorts International, Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts, Red Carnation Hotel Collection, Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide Inc., Premier Inn – Whitbread Group and Wyndham Worldwide.
