Hotels, convention centers, and other hospitality venues throughout California are beginning to take an active interest in green construction. There are many benefits to doing so including the following.
Environmental Benefits of Building Green
Environmentally speaking, green building is an excellent tool to reduce waste, protect biodiversity, conserve resources, and improve water and air quality.
Economic Impact of Greener Construction Practices
The hospitality industry is not one widely known for conserving resources. Hotel guests are not always environmentally conscious. Taking the initiative with water conserving toilets and showerheads saves businesses money on water. Building more energy efficient hotels allows owners to either pass along the savings to customers or reap the returns for themselves.
Enhances Guest Perceptions
Consumers are becoming increasingly concerned over the environment. Building greener buildings for your hospitality business allows you to capitalize on ecotourism without sacrificing luxuries customers who aren’t as concerned over the planet expect from a business such as yours.
