Why the research?
After talking to dozens of European hotel owners, managers, and directors at the Annual General Meeting of European Hotel Managers’ Association EHMA in Marbella, we realized that even though environmental sustainability is a hot topic in the industry, not a whole lot of research exists about the practical solutions that are used to manage energy, water, and waste in hotels across Europe.
That’s why we decided to conduct our own study and share the findings with you – completely free of charge. To understand how environmental sustainability is promoted in European hotels, we first asked 40 hoteliers to complete a brief online survey. To complement those findings, we then interviewed 3 highly esteemed industry thought leaders:
- Domingo Rodríguez-Ortiz, Director at Hotel Inglaterra in Spain
- Francisco Corrêa de Barros, General Manager of Palácio Estoril Hotel Golf & Spa in Portugal
- Juha Mähönen, Managing Director of Hotel Haikko Manor & Spa, Porvoo, Finland & EHMA Councilor & National Delegate for Nordic, Baltic & Russia
