CHR Webinar: The Evolution of Hotel Sustainability Data: Carbon, Food Waste, and Beyond

May 29 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am EDT

This webinar will explore sustainability KPIs for hotels, unveiling the latest results from the 10th annual Cornell Hotel Sustainability Benchmarking Index of Energy, Water, and Carbon Emissions with data provided by over 27,000 hotels from over 40 companies, exploring differences in performance across and within hotel segments and markets, as well as the industrywide pathways of decarbonization.

While these KPIs have solidified over the past decade, other sustainability indicators are arising and gaining importance. The breadth of climate change and biodiversity impacts continue to be better understood, mapped, and quantified.  The webinar will further explore the advent of Scope 3 emissions and the nexus of food waste for both climate action and biodiversity, with an overview of latest initiatives toward the next frontier of sustainability measurement.
