Sustainability Webinar No. 2

Reducing Utility Costs at Hotel and Resort Properties

The Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association is proud to offer exclusively to our members the second course in our Sustainability Webinar Series, provided by our strategic partner OBM International (OBMI). These webinars will be focused on addressing the vital issue of sustainability in the Caribbean.

With skyrocketing fuel prices eating into profits, hoteliers have few reservations about cutting energy expenses. Going beyond mere cost-cutting, however, and stepping into the realm of utility cost management is key. Hoteliers who focus on controlling their utility consumption have a distinct operating advantage through improved P&L performance, and this webinar will show you how.

Learning Objectives:
  • Learn how to control your property's utility consumption.
  • Learn how your operating practices reduce your utility costs.
  • To identify the best tools for the implementation of sustainability
  • To pinpoint the resources CHTA, via Caribbean Alliance for Sustainable Tourism (CAST), is providing its members.
