FR06 - What We Mean When We Talk About Sustainability

Feb 10, 2017 1:45pm ‐ Feb 10, 2017 2:45pm


If you’re thinking about sustainability as a collection of ponderous rating systems to navigate, you’re stuck in a 1.0 version that became popular in 2005, and was gave everyone green fatigue by 2012. Today, sustainability in the built environment has exploded to encompass a whole range of focus areas, technologies, and business models, from solar microgrids, to autonomous and electric vehicles, and from human health and well being to behavioral economics. Hospitality projects tend to be some of the best opportunities to embrace these concepts, as guest experience creates the rationale for leaving behind the business as usual. In this talk, Josh will explore these topics, as well as his experience in working with everything form large hotel chains, remote resorts, product manufacturers, and urban boutiques.
