HOSPA launches sustainability toolkit for hotel owners

According to the group, to achieve Net Zero, the hotel industry must reduce its carbon emissions per room by 90% by 2050

The Hospitality Professionals Association (HOSPA) has launched a new sustainability toolkit, designed to ensure hotels have the resources needed to deal with the “current climate crisis”.

The toolkit, which launched this month, provides both environmental and societal resources for hoteliers, including guides, downloadable reports, practical advice – with the aim of “challenging the climatic and social impact of traditional hospitality processes”.

HOSPA said that with an estimated contribution of around 2% to global carbon emissions, the “magnitude” of hotel emissions is significant and in need of “collective, informed solutions”. 

According to the group, to achieve Net Zero, the hotel industry must reduce its carbon emissions per room by 90% by 2050. 

Jane Pendlebury, CEO of HOSPA, said: “As we continue to recover from Covid, we must look to build a better and more resilient hospitality industry that’s fit for the future. 

“And as part of that, it’s not just about financial recovery – it’s clear that sustainability must be at the heart of the rebuilding process. After all, that’s what sustainability is: the ability to continue in the long-term. This toolkit is our way of helping to guide our members and support them in their long-term sustainability journeys.”
