2014 White Paper on Tourism and Water
Mar 20, 2014
This second White Paper, From Challenges to Solutions, maps water stress and scarcity in the Asia Pacific region against tourism water use. The paper reviews new evidence to better understand the key drivers for water utilization in hotels and where management action should be best focused.
“As water stress and scarcity increases, so too will the cost of water, and the expectation and impetus for more sustainable water use by the hospitality industry,” said Dr. Raj Rajan, vice president, RD&E, and global sustainability technical leader for Ecolab, and a major contributor to the white paper. “This white paper will promote water stewardship within the Asia-Pacific hospitality industry by providing hotel operators with practical solutions to reduce water consumption and costs within their operations.”
