Itâs that time again â the National Business Travel Association (NBTA) has put out the coming yearâs round of Requests for Proposals, otherwise known as RFPâs. From coast to coast and around the world, hotel staff are sharpening their pencils and filling out select paperwork from a mountain of NBTA forms with the hope of winning business in 2010.
RFP season is a familiar ritual for veteran hoteliers. Each summer itâs the same old song and dance, answering the same old standard questions about room count, location, ratings, taxes, amenities, ADA compliance, etc.
But we at EcoGreenHotel are pleased to see the requests for proposals require some additional new information. Hotels must now outline their environmental initiatives and green certifications. Thatâs rightâ¦ your âGreen Hotel Checklistâ has just become critical ammunition in your NBTA bidding war arsenal!
NBTAâs 2010 RFPâs require that your hotel describe: â¢ the top five environmental programs employed on your property (such as linen reuse, reusable key cards, energy efficiency efforts) â¢ environmental certifications youâve earned, with a preference given to certifications that require on-site audits â¢ details about your recycling program â¢ your use of environmentally responsible cleaners â¢ your water conservation efforts, such as linen reuse and/or water saving fixtures
Obviously, hotels that can demonstrate strong environmental programs stand to rank higher in the competition than those that canât. In fact, itâs very clear that not having a sustainability plan in effect might cost your hotel big business next year.
If you want to boost your propertyâs green profile â and your chances of winning large national accounts in 2010 â contact EcoGreenHotel right now. Our team of seasoned green hospitality specialists can quickly, efficiently and affordably set the wheels in motion to get your environmental program rolling today. Weâll identify the âlow hanging fruitâ and show you how to make the best use of your current assets, and weâll also present you with a wide variety of options for implementing a meaningful â and profitable â sustainability plan at your hotel.
Donât put your green initiative off another minute. The planet â and your hotelâs bottom line â depends upon it.
