As the world moves towards greener, environmental-protection initiatives such as energy saving and conservation efforts, more and more companies are now interested in how they can quantify, reduce, or offset their carbon emissions. The hospitality industry is now on the bandwagon.
An organisation’s contribution to global warming in the form of direct or indirect carbon emissions from its products or services is termed as its “carbon footprint”.
TÜV SÜD PSB helps hotels around the world validate and verify their carbon footprints generated by their daily activities and service operations.
The carbon footprint services include:
Assist clients in validating and verifying their carbon footprint
Development of verification protocol based on international standards to audit GHG emissions from hotels
