Guide to our resources on Climate Action

We have created resources to support the hotel industry with their climate action activities. Follow our guidance below for advice on awareness and implementation, and best practice examples from the industry.

Step one - Understand impacts and set objectives

These resources will help companies and properties take their first steps towards understanding carbon emissions in the hotel industry, calculating their own emissions, and realising the business case for low-carbon hotels.

Share your sustainability news with the Alliance

As hospitality companies progress towards Net Positive Hospitality, the World Sustainable Hospitality Alliance is keen to share good news and best practice from across the industry. Our Net Positive LinkedIn Hub acts as a positive space to celebrate these actions, achievements, and commitments.

We invite hotels to get involved by sending case studies to or tagging @Net Positive Hospitality within LinkedIn posts relating to environmental sustainability or social responsibility. We will then re-share industry posts onto our LinkedIn hub, for companies across and beyond the hospitality sector to see.
