Process Street's Hotel Sustainability Audit outlines specific criteria and performance indicators which act to construct a sustainable business.
This Hotel Sustainability Audit is made up of four sections:
- Section A: Demonstrate Effective Sustainable Management
- Section B: Maximize Social and Economic Benefits to the Local Community and Minimize Negative Impacts
- Section C: Maximize Benefits to Cultural Heritage and Minimize Negative Impacts
- Section D: Maximize Benefits to the Environment and Minimize Negative Impacts
Process Street's Hotel Sustainability Audit has been designed to adhere to the Global Sustainable Tourism Council Criteria for Tourism Industry version 3, December 2016. The outlined criteria, in each of these four sections, design a minimum standard for Hotel businesses to achieve sustainability.
Defined as the 'capacity to endure, to maintain a process or situation over time', sustainability as a discipline can be incorporated into a business strategy, to ensure prolonged business success in a changing climate.
In addition, global data shows that over 60% of millennial consumers are opting for greener alternatives. Ensuring that business sustainability is achieved must, therefore, be a priority.
This audit provides a structured, quick and straightforward way for any hotel business to internally assess the sustainability of their operations. Areas for improvement and areas of success are automatically reported on at the end of this audit.
We recommend continual assessment of your hotel's sustainability, therefore running this audit at least once every financial year.
Process Street's 'Hotel Sustainability Audit' has been specifically designed to aid you in building an environmentally, people friendly, and sustainable hotel business.
At the beginning of this audit, you will be presented with a set of specialized questions that are designed to determine a hotel's level of sustainability compliance. These questions are given as sub checklists. For each sub checklist, you will also be presented with the option to leave notes and record your conclusions.
On completion of the audit, all of your answers will automatically compile to produce a final sustainability report.
The audit also provides a tutorial on how to export the end report into Google Documents via an automation process. This automation will run each time this audit is complete, saving you both time and effort.
