Sustainable Reopening Project

Sustainable and Social Hotels Post-Lockdown

Hotels are searching for reopening soluions  that are cost-effective, sanitary, guest-friendly, and sustainable. 

 

That's why we're working with 4 hotels: QO, Meininger, Stayokay and The Student Hotel to test and iterate better solutions for their spaces. We'll test solutions that keep sustainability and social priorities at the top of hotel agendas. The lessons learned from July to September 2020 will be shared with the broader hotel community to move the sector forward. If you're a hotel and want to stay informed on our findings, get on our update list!

Challenges we're helping hotels with

Rethinking Shared spaces

Managing shared spaces right now like toilets, lobbies and restaurants requires creativity, technology and the right messaging. 

Alternatives to single-use items

Since COVID-19, hotels and their restaurants have been forced to switch from reusable items to  takeaway options and more single-use items.

Behavioral messaging

Generating messaging that has a strong foundation in behavioral theories to motivate guest behavior is key right now.

Understanding guest expectations

Hotels can be unsure of what guests expect from them - so we measure guest expectations to allow them to make informed decisions.

Calling Hotels & Innovators

One of the key goals of this project is to share what we learn with hotels around the world, to help accelerate the journey to more sustainable practices. If you're a hotel looking to stay up-to-date on our insights, get on our update list!

 

There's an urgent and pressing need for innovation in hotels right now. We are looking for the overlap between innovation, sustainability, and adhering to regulations. If you're an innovator with a sustainability solution that could help with this, we'd love to hear from you.
