The reliability and exactitude of data concerning the amount of
waste produced and recycled per hotel is currently being improved.
It has proven difficult to collect consistent, complete data from the
hotels and directly from suppliers, due to the disparity in reporting,
management and waste categorization methodologies among
countries and suppliers.
A project will be undertaken in 2014 to drive further improvement,
in particular with the support of the country procurement teams.
Results of other hotel waste management
initiatives
Today, hotel performance is primarily assessed on the basis of the
percentage of waste recycled, according to the various categories.
Charter 21, which supports the operational deployment of our
sustainable development strategy in the hotels, also recommends
a variety of initiatives to improve the management of hotel waste
and limit its impact on the environment. In general, the various
percentages of hotels sorting and recycling the different types
of waste have been trending upwards for many years:
