Key Findings

•Green hospitality primarily involves eco-friendly accommodation facilities and buildings which have been developed based on sustainable design, applications, and practices.
•Buildings are one of the leading carbon emitters with hotels contributing between x % and x % of the total carbon emissions by buildings.
•More than x % of business travelers prefer eco-friendly accommodations. Moreover, leisure travelers too are increasingly preferring ecotourism.
•Green hospitality is often considered only as compliance of hotels with green building standards. However, it encompasses other specific operational aspects as well.
•Besides certain energy and resource management principles, green hotels follow particular elements of operations as well.
•Tourism has been identified as a growth pillar by the Southeast Asian governments as it contributes to economic development.
•With rising awareness about eco-travel, tourists are conscious of the importance of green accommodation or hotels. As such, the adoption of green technologies by existing and new hotels has become important.
•In Southeast Asia, the hotel construction market revenue is set to grow to $ x billion, a x % increase between 2013 and 2018. The growth rate is higher than the building industry’s rate of % over the same period.
•Green hospitality has immense implications for the building industry value chain.
•Other than hoteliers and resort owners, green hospitality can include participants such as building construction companies, material suppliers, green technology vendors, and facility management companies.
•Resorts are a key target for green technology suppliers. The technology enables the use of natural resources for generating energy lowering operational cost.
•Current building technologies installed in green hotels include LED lighting, heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC), and building management systems (BMS).
•Adoption of green technologies is common among high-end-and middle-range hoteliers.
•However, as it may be unrealistic for small hotels to install sophisticated BMS or HVAC systems, the focus will be on ‘greening’ daily operations to reduce resource consumption.
