Effortless ECO, Noken solutions for effortless sustainable hotels
Sustainability is no longer a trend, but a responsibility. Current tourism generates 5% of greenhouse gas emissions in the world, and efficient hotels are key to getting more sustainable tourism. More and more solutions, habits and behaviour that the hotel sector is including to alleviate this footprint, such as the progressive elimination of single-use plastics, the incorporation of recycled building materials or clothing, efficient appliances, biodegradable products, and gastronomic zero mile offers.
This change in behaviour has both an economic and social return.
According to a 2014 study carried out by the Global Sustainable Tourism Council and the Hotel Technology Institute (HTI), 90% of travellers prefer to opt for a sustainable hotel, and furthermore, some 34% are willing to pay more for them. A growing awareness among millennials for whom sustainability is a priority, according to Nielsen.
In addition, the world not only saves on resources, but also on accommodation. There, water and energy consumption can be reduced and hence, its economic efficiency.
