Green Key International is proud to present their new free water footprint tool for hotels on the Green Key website.
The water footprint tool allows hotels to measure the total water usage, the water usage per occupied room, as well as the water usage per area of meeting space on an hourly basis. The methodology has been adopted from the Hotel Water Measurement Initiative Tool developed by the International Tourism Partnership. Eighteen global hotel groups and several technical consultants and global water experts have worked together to create the industry’s first consistent water measurement methodology.
The measurement of water consumption is part of a hotels' business operations, but each establishment or hotel group has its own way to do so, and includes different water sources and uses into the calculation. The new tool provides an industry-wide standardisation of measuring the consumption of water and the possibility to compare the results with other establishments.
The original tool was launched during the SIWI World Water Week on 30 August in Stockholm. Green Key's adoption of the tool was kindly supported by the Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group.
