New York, NY – The Carbon Accounting Company has been awarded the Global Business Travel Association’s 2013 Project ICARUS Outstanding Achievement Award for its Green Hotels Global environmental measurement tool.
This award recognizes companies for demonstrating outstanding performance in key principles of sustainability.
Green Hotels Global measures and presents property-specific environmental data on thousands of hotels worldwide, including room-night carbon and water footprints, waste diversion rates, and other environmental performance metrics. This data is made readily available and free of charge to travel managers, meeting planners and corporate sustainability officers.
“We are honoured by this recognition”, said Ian Lipton, President and Chief Operating Officer of The Carbon Accounting Company.
“Environmental data is being requested by an increasing number of global corporations in their hotel selection process,” said Lipton. “These companies are using our data to track their carbon and water footprints from transient hotel use and meetings and events. Hotels that disclose this information through our platform are already seeing an increase in business.”
