Lodging

The lodging industry is the second largest employer in the nation. On average, hotels purchase more products each week than 100 families purchase in a whole year. Every item purchased has an environmental impact on guests, employees and the Earth. That is why it is important for hotels, motels, vacation rentals and bed-and-breakfasts to incorporate environmentally sound principles in their everyday business practices. Developing a sustainability program can significantly reduce the cost for utilities, which can, in turn, help to increase profits. To find out more about what your property can do to reduce its environmental footprint, click the links below. Also, check out EPA's Green Lodging Calculator!
