LONDON – Since 1987, when the concept of sustainability was first mentioned on a coordinated international platform with the release of the UN-sponsored Brundtland Commission’s “Our Common Future”, the movement towards sustainability has expanded from pole to pole. The hospitality industry is no exception.

Among key drivers effecting sustainability efforts in the hotel industry one can mention cost savings, operational efficiency and strengthening competitive position.
