Marriott ist ernst über Ressourcen zu schonen

NiAs a student interested in hospitality and hotel management, and as a longtime member of the IEA, it seemed to me that Marriott recognizes that one of the most pressing concerns around the world today is energy conservation. Evidence of this can be found in the great effort Marriott has gone through in order to LEED certify many of its hotels. So, when an opportunity arose for me to learn more by interviewing a high ranking Marriott official in Texas, I decided a trip to Texas to learn more about the Marriott’s serious dedication to solving energy issues in its hotels would be very exciting.

Für diejenigen unter Ihnen, die nicht mit LEED-Zertifizierung sind ",LEED, oder Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design, Ist ein Green Building Zertifizierung Programm, das Best-in-Class-Gebäude Strategien und Praktiken erkennt. LEED-Zertifizierung zu erhalten, Gebäudeprojekte gerecht zu Voraussetzungen und Punkte sammeln, um verschiedene Ebenen der Zertifizierung zu erreichen. Voraussetzungen und Kredite unterscheiden sich für die einzelnen Rating-System, und wählen Sie den besten Teams fit für ihr Projekt. "

Energy conservation is possible at the consumer level, by enacting measures such as turning off the lights when you exit a room, or unplugging electrical sources that are not currently in use; however, when this is expanded to include commercial businesses (such as hotels), the gains are even greater. Energy efficiency can bring increased financial capital, improve environmental quality, and reduce energy costs. Industrial and commercial users can increase energy efficiency to maximize their profit. For more fantastic information on how it now makes sense from a financial standpoint for companies to change their energy use, please read The Quest und Eine kühne Vision.

In Texas, I met with Al Beams, the Director of Engineering of the Gaylord Texan Resort and Convention Center owned by Marriott, who was happy to provide examples of how the hotel is already making this a top priority. Gaylord Texan Resort is working to achieve LEED certification in this year (2014) by running a massive recycling program that reuses everything from pallets, light bulbs, and batteries, to paper, metal, and glass. Marriott was the first major hotel company in the U.S. to design and construct a LEED-certified hotel in 2005. The company is devoted to protecting the environment and reducing energy consumption reducing and diverting waste by implementing low-energy light bulbs, using showerheads that use less water, and biodegradable laundry bags. For reducing electric energy use, the hotel will shut down the air conditioner in the lobby at midnight each night, when the heat is least likely to bother its guests. Marriott also encourages sustainability in their kitchens through actions such as purchasing organic and responsibly sourced food. If other businesses adopted the same model as the Marriott standard, the world would see a significant reduction in its energy consumption.

As there are a finite number of resources available to support the ever-increasing global population, the importance of energy conservation cannot be exaggerated; energy conservation refers to ways that reduce energy consumption, conserve resources, and reduce pollution to the environment. This is possible through improving energy efficiency, reducing energy consumption, or reducing the consumption of traditional energy sources. This is a goal of the International Energy Alliance that we hope to spread through increased awareness.
