Hotel goals need buy in

Achieving Intercontinental’s new targets for 2017 relies on convincing hotel franchisees of the benefits of cutting energy and water use.

The InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) is aiming for a 12% cut in its greenhouse gas emissions intensity by 2017 as part of a new set of environmental and social targets announced on 26 September. But only half of its hotels are signed up to the improvement programme to deliver the reduction.1

IHG has some 4,600 hotels in 100 countries under nine brands.

IHG’s Green Engage programme is the main tool for achieving environmental improvements. It is an online system that provides guidance to hotels on how to cut their impacts. It also helps hotels measure and report energy, water and waste.
