Accor, a prominent global hotel group, has pledged to achieve net zero emissions by 2050, becoming the first major industry player to make such a commitment. To attain this objective, Accor has undertaken various key measures, including implementing the Global Utility & Sustainability Reporting Program, which requires all hotels to use the GAIA 2.0 tool to track their emissions and reduce them by the end of this year.
Moreover, Accor has initiated the Smart Green Hotels Program, which involves partnering with hotel teams and owners to adopt energy-efficient systems and invest in green energy sources. Additionally, they have developed the Net Zero Carbon Calculator Tool for B-to-B guests, enabling them to measure their carbon footprint for events and accommodations, and allowing them to offset their emissions by purchasing carbon credits.
