Caesar’s Entertainment is the first company to sign up for the EPA’s WaterSense H2Otel Challenge for organizations to encourage hotels to use best management practices that will save water and money, while reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
“Hotels that reduce their water use will not only help their community save precious resources, but can gain a competitive edge in today’s green marketplace,” said Nancy Stoner, acting assistant administrator for EPA’s Office of Water. “Since 2006, WaterSense has helped Americans save more than 487 billion gallons of water, and now we’re building on that success to help hotels take their sustainability efforts to the next level.”
Hotels across the country will take a pledge to “ACT”—assess, change, and track their water use by:
- Assessing water use and savings opportunities throughout the hotel
- Changing products and processes to more water-efficient models and methods
- Tracking water reduction progress before and after incorporating best management practice
Hotels can find ways to improve their water efficiency and performance while providing the highest quality experience for guests, the EPA says.
