In 2000, ETCI launched its Hospitality Forever™ sustainability program for the hotel and tourism industry. Combining industry-wide best practices, the guiding system principles of The Natural Step, and features of environmental management system design based on the international ISO 14001 standard, this program has been applied successfully to hotels and resorts in the US and abroad.
Finally, after nearly 10 years in preparation, the book is being published.
Hospitality Forever™: A Guide to Sustainability for the World's Largest Industry, by Leslie E. Wildesen, Ph.D. contains background, how-tos, worksheets, references and web links, and step-by-step details on how to apply these principles and tools to "greening" your facility, whether it is a family-operated resort in a developing country or a member of a large chain operation in the developed world.
