UK Hotel Trends 2016: Eco on the Up

by: 
It’s no secret that the booming international travel industry generates huge amounts of waste and pollution, with tourism accounting for 5% of global emissions. If you also consider the fact that in December 2015, 195 countries adopted the first ever universal legally binding climate deal at the COP21 talks in Paris, it’s little wonder then that hotels, especially in the UK where they rank in the top 5 energy and utilities users, are increasingly focussed on reducing their environmental impact; both in terms of their own direct utilities use, and that of their supply chain.  Read More

Opting for Water Conservation instead of Conflict

by: 
We are all-too-familiar with wars for oil but wars over water? Oil cost multiple dollars per gallon and is a trillion dollar industry while water is free and covers 70% of the Earth’s surface. Why fight? It’s all an illusion. While water is seemingly plentiful only 1% of it is usable by humans. Consider a human can live, at most, three days without it and it’s actually one of our most precious resources.  In America we take water for granted but the fact is water is in short supply in many parts of the world. An American taking a five minute shower uses more water than the average person in a developing country slum uses for the entire day. Worldwide, 780 million people lack access to clean clean water, and 3.4 million die each year from from water, sanitation, and hygiene-related causes.  Read More

Every day, thousands of people get in their car, hop a bus, board a train, or get on a flight to travel, both for business and for pleasure.

Water and Energy for All – Increase Use Efficiency

by: 
When it comes to remarkable growth curves, the world population graph is hard to beat. Humanity has flourished as technological advances and improvements in health care have reduced child mortality and extended lifespans. The number of humans on Earth has grown from an estimated one billion to seven billion in the past 200 years. Most remarkable in all this is all signs indicate the rate of growth is getting faster. While it took approximately 123 years for the world population to grow from one billion in 1804 to two billion, it took only 33 years to reach the three billion mark in 1960 and only 15 years to hit four billion from there. While estimates vary, experts predict the world population in 2050 will be anywhere from 7.4 billion to more than 10.6 billion.  Read More

Water Use Habits are Hard to Break

by: 
When it comes to human survival in the wild, it helps to think of the "Rule of Threes": a person can live three minutes without air, three days without water, and three weeks without food. It's clear water is very important to human life.  Now consider water, our second most precious resource after the air itself, covers about 70% of the Earth’s surface, but less than 1% is available for human use. Water, seemingly abundant, is actually a finite resource and precious commodity. Worldwide, 780 million people lack access to clean water, and 3.4 million die each year from a water-related disease.  Read More
