The American Hotel & Lodging Association has announced the "Energy Slasher Challenge" competition. The winners will be the small, medium, and large property with the greatest overall savings April 1, 2010 – April 1, 2011 compared to the previous year. And they are even giving away prizes. http://www.ahla.com/Green.aspx?id=30121
Applause to AH&LA not only for issuing this challenge but also for making available a wonderful Green Resource page http://www.ahla.com/green.aspx, a glossary and even a link to a green guru who can help to answer questions!
It is exciting to see associations like AH&LA (for hotels), IACC (for conference centers), GMIC (for meeting planners)http://www.greenmeetings.info/Trash_Challange_FAQ creating friendly competition to initiate real change. Sustainability continues to move into the mainstream--not just because it is the "right thing to do" but because it makes good business sense. Everyone wins!
