Next to the fact that it requires a significant time commitment from hotel owners, it also requires a financial investment. This is often not viable for smaller hotels, hostels and B&B. However, we know that more and more hoteliers are moving towards implementing sustainable measurements. At bookdifferent.com we want to capture this movement and facilitate hoteliers worldwide in becoming more sustainable. And that is why we have developed the carbon footprint calculator to help hoteliers to calculate the carbon footprint to undertake steps for a more sustainable practice, save money and attract a growing number conscious travelers.
