The territory development in green style

As we know tourism in Italy represents a sector quite important, both for the high number of visitors and for the economic influence. On one hand our country offers level is very high for what regards tourist destinations, on the other hand it is not the same for the accommodation. There are mainly old buildings, with great facilities but not so efficient for the environmental impact.

The demand for ecosustainability is achieving a wide part of the market and ecotourism is not anymore just for few people. To meet this demand it is not necessary creating new ecosustainable buildings, but what it is important is converting the existent with eco-friendly principles. Besides the new buildings has already join these principles because they must respect the recent laws, but for the existent ones there are not real obligations.

The conversion into sustainable hotel can be done also with modest investments that allow a rapid economic gain. Just to make some simple examples, the replacement of lights with low energy lights, the conscious use of water with flow-taps or the reuse of rainwater and the correct waste management.

To have these choices it is necessary starting from the top with awareness and training of the management. An important role for that is represented by environmental certifications that attest the ecosustainability of a business and of the places where it works.

The Certificate of Ecosustainability by The GreenWatcher is just for that task, taking care to saving and simplify the processes. With our EcoAssess businesses can estimate scientifically how ecosustainable they are. Doing it in the correct way is an advantage for the business and for the environment. It is now shown that being green helps a business to save management costs.
