About My Business:

 

The hospitality industry’s green movement isn’t just a fad, but rather a sensibility demanded by guests nationwide. It is now part of the decision-making for corporate clients and individual travelers. While some hotels and restaurants have embraced the movement, many are still trying to figure it out. Too often, being good stewards of the environment is perceived as a bleeding heart issue whose costs wreak havoc on a property’s financial goals. This is not true. In fact, with the right approach, being ‘green’ can boost the bottom line. But, with countless options from energy management technology to green hotel certifications, the process is more confusing than ever. Numerous cost-savings, rebates, incentives - such as energy credits - and funding opportunities are available to ‘go green.’ When strategically planned, smartly managed and systematically measured, properties that proactively sustain the environment are dramatically more cost-efficient and better places to work and visit. When added to your marketing programs, sustainability efforts attract guests. Even better, technologies and incentives are constantly changing so a green hotel project that didn’t pencil out two years ago might make great business sense this year. For example, an LED (Light Emitting Diode) lamp that was $130 a year ago is now $49, with an ROI between 25 and 50%. Green Lodging Partners’ team of experienced consultants can help determine strategic priorities, implementation, and maintaining green operations. David Burdick has helped over 50 hotels successfully green their operations. Stefan Mühle is considered one of the nation’s leading experts on ‘greening’ the hospitality industry, and has extensive knowledge in marketing green hotels.
