Sustainability has become a major concern in the hotel industry in recent years and is an imperative that will be progressively driven by upcoming regulations. Importantly, it is also highly demanded by the market, with travelers increasingly expecting environmentally friendly practices from their accommodation providers. Raising the sustainability standards of hospitality businesses therefore results in better preparation for regulatory compliance, leading to certification, as well as an increased competitive advantage. In response to this, the large international hotel chains in Singapore have already implemented various sustainability measures, actively working towards lowering their environmental impacts. However, for small and medium-sized hotels, implementing such measures can be a challenge due to their limited resources and expertise.
