Resource or Project Abstract

This work proposed to develop and introduce a cleaner production (CP) programme for Irish hotels. This work expected that the core group of hotels would achieve 831,000 euro reduction in direct costs per annum and reduce their environmental impacts by a reduction of 3000 t of CO2 emissions, reduce waste going to landfill by 870t and reduce water consumption by 50,000m3. 56 hotels were engaged in more than 20 counties in Ireland. The hotels ranged from 3, 4, and 5 star hotels and represented about 10% of Irish hotel room stock. Quantifiable environmental achievements included 1113t of waste diverted from landfill and 3000t of CO2 output reduced by the end of 2006. 20 training sessions and workshops were held with over 600 person-training sessions delivered. 40 environmental reviews were carried out and the CP plans created.

Supplementary Information About This Resource

In this section some supplementary information about this resource is outlined. Lineage information helps us to understand why this project was carried out, what policy or research requirements did it fulfil, etc. Lineage is important in understanding the rationale behind the carrying out of a project or the collection of a specific dataset etc. Links to web sites, applications, papers, etc are outlined to provide you with additional information or supplementary reading about the project or dataset

Lineage information about this project or dataset
The Irish Hospitality Institute (IHI) proposed to develop and introduce a Cleaner Production programme for Irish Hotels. This would incorporate CP audits, identification of CP opportunities and assistance with the development of CP programmes. There are currently (as of the report) 1200 members of IHI in Ireland. 40 of these hotels joined the core CGPP programme in IHI while a further 16 joined as non-core hotels.
Supplementary Information
The CP programme was pilot tested in 20 core hotels in various regions around Ireland with a non-core or group of approx 80 other interested hotels. The hotels involved in the programme would be benchmarked for water consumption, waste generation, and electricity consumption.

Key benchmarks - Waste (Kgs of landfill waste per sleeper), Water (litres of water per sleeper), Energy (Kilowatt Hours (kWh) per square meter of internal hotel space per annum.

20 workshops were held nationally to raise participant awareness in elements of environmental management.

A major national event was held during this project: National Environmental Conference & Exhibition for the Hospitality & Tourism Industry: Tuesday 5th September 2006 in Killashee House Hotel.
