In little under two years ITH, the Hotel Technological Institute has, with the support of the Secretary of State for Tourism, launched the ITH Sustainability Model. This model is geared towards hotel and tourist accommodation establishments and incorporates good practices and measures designed to improve their energy efficiency, helping them make greater economic savings while improving the level of sustainability of their businesses.
The ITH Sustainability Model is implemented via an online platform, called iSave Hotel, which hotels and tourist establishments access free of charge, and by means of which their managers can identify those saving measures that are most relevant to their own business. The tool includes a map of the funding available for efficiency measures, as well as a list of service providers and efficient products. Apart from being technologically open to tourist establishments, the iSave Hotel tool provides a free online advisory service on sustainability and energy efficiency, complemented by onsite technical advice. 52 hotel establishments, representing a total of 7,414 bedrooms, have already enjoyed the benefits of this service.Read more…
