If you are in the hospitality business, you need this book. Your continued success depends on sustaining your planet, your people and your enterprise while serving demanding business and leisure travelers in a 24/7/365 world.
This practical book is the first to put all three aspects of sustainability together in one place: (1) cost-effective sustainability practices, (2) essential sustainability processes, and (3) fundamental sustainability principles.
This enhanced version, with
clickable web links, full color images, numerous examples, downloadable worksheets, templates and step-by-step instructions, will:
• help you select environmentally friendly practices that won't break the bank now and that you won't regret later on;
• show you how to create processes that will insure your enterprise meets international standards for sustainable environmental management systems;
• introduce you to four science-based natural system conditions, the fundamental principles that determine whether your business will even exist in the future.
These tools, techniques and principles apply to lodging, restaurants, bars, tour operations, cruise lines, golf courses, dive shops, casinos, ski areas and any other hospitality enterprises seeking to future-proof themselves against the inevitable demise of today's unsustainable business approaches.
Whether you are just starting down the sustainability path or are well underway, you will find practical tools and ideas you can use right now.
