Travel and overnight stays inevitably result in a high quantity of CO₂ emissions. The hotel and tourism industry is therefore responsible for a not inconsiderable quantity of greenhouse gas emissions worldwide. At the same time, these two industries are also particularly affected by climate change and its consequences. Moreover, the environmental awareness of the guests has developed increasingly in recent years, as documented in current studies.
You can quickly and easily calculate the carbon footprint of your hotel using myclimate's IT-based performance management system. You receive a confirmation that shows you the quantity of CO₂ emissions produced in total as well as per individual overnight stay.
The emissions in the following categories are considered for the calculation:
Because the climate-relevant event data is recorded separately when it is input, there is an option when offsetting emissions to choose between an overnight stay, an event, or all of the hotel emissions. You can also choose an appropriate label for your communication – «climate-neutral hotel», «climate-neutral event», «climate-neutral overnight stay» and «climate-neutral gatsronomy». In general, the offsetting costs per person per night are less than 1 per cent of the price of an overnight stay.
