    Overview

    Many of the world’s most popular destinations are also those most sensitive to environmental issues including water scarcity, global warming and pollution. The demand we put on natural resources can be particularly evident on small islands or in hot, arid climates. Many popular holiday destinations have limited or no green infrastructures such as recycling facilities, clean energy or rainwater harvesting.

    We began working on this issue in 2006, to help hotels, small capacity boats and golf courses reduce water and energy consumption and the amount of waste generated that goes to landfill.

    What we did

    • Developed training guides for hoteliers
    • We expanded our advice to golf courses and boat owners
    • Trained industry staff worldwide
