ODESSA, Florida & SINGAPORE – With the support of Green Key Global, Mekong Tourism Office, Horwath HTL Asia Pacific and Clean the World, Green Lodging News and Greenview have launched the planet’s premier Green Lodging Survey. You can participate in the survey by clicking here. There is no cost to do so.
Tens of thousands of green lodging establishments around the planet—primarily those in the United States, Canada, and Southeast Asia—are encouraged to benchmark their sustainability practices by completing this survey. The Green Lodging Survey is sponsored by The Arbor Day Foundation at the Silver level and Pineapple Hospitality, Aquawing Ozone Laundry Systems and reCollect2 Co at the Bronze level.
The Green Lodging Survey is the lodging industry’s annual exercise to assess and catalyze green innovation, best practices, and awareness regarding the state of sustainability across hotels worldwide. The Green Lodging Survey is powered by Greenview, a leader in advancing hotel sustainability, and managed by Green Lodging News, lodging’s leading environmental news source.
“I am excited to partner with Greenview on this global project that has been built to uncover and analyze lodging’s leading innovative best practices in the area of sustainability,” says Glenn Hasek, Publisher and Editor of Green Lodging News. “Green Lodging News and Greenview intend to reach tens of thousands of lodging establishments with this survey.”
“We see sustainability as a continuous adoption of best practices, more efficient and engaging technology, and innovation,” says Eric Ricaurte, Founder & CEO of Greenview. “The Green Lodging Survey strives to be the main resource for a hotel to benchmark itself along this adoption path, one practice at a time. Rather than viewing a hotel as either ‘green’ or ‘not’, the Green Lodging Survey will enable the industry to see the general progression.”
The Survey: The survey consists of about 100 easy-to-complete questions covering the latest in operational practices, facility attributes, and outreach programs to conserve resources, reduce carbon emissions, increase guest experience, and make positive community impact. Hotels, Resorts, and B&Bs participate by responding to the survey via the online Greenview Portal platform where work can be saved and answers easily can be updated for the next year’s survey. The survey will remain open through August 31, 2016.
The Trends Report: After the close of the survey, a Trends Report will be produced that will analyze the results with general trends and highlight exemplary practices and innovations that stand out, serving as a guidepost for the industry and especially the survey participants.
The Benchmarking Report: Survey participants will receive a compare report confidential to each participant, to serve as a yardstick for a property to understand the status of each specific practice within the general participant universe.
