6. Set company targets, property-level targets for managed hotels, and suggest targets for franchised hotels, to improve management of biodiversity impacts local to the property and remove endangered species from menus
7. Review available guidance to identify relevant actions to reduce negative impacts on biodiversity or support local biodiversity. This should consist of simple behavioural activities and low-cost technical options to be executed in the short-term (e.g. payback in 1 year or less) and a headline plan for longer-term initiatives. This should include giving preference to green cleaning products, giving preference to items which are certified and responsibly sourced, and removing endangered species from menus
Review progress by comparing against previous performance and industry benchmarks where available (such as CHSB). Repeat on a regular basis (e.g. monthly/quarterly)
Review benefits seen through actions
Review challenges encountered along the way and plan solutions to implement
Update leadership on progress
Inform corporate customers and investors of performance and activities by including information in communications and meetings
