Hotel decarbonization: a decision-making tool
Ahead of the UN Climate Change Conference COP26 in Glasgow in November 2021, a series of breakthroughs can be observed in terms of climate action. Governments align their policies with a carbon neutral future; technological advances make solar and wind energy cheaper to produce compared to fossil fuels in many markets; and the development of construction techniques makes it possible to build wooden towers in an increasingly urbanized world.
Teacher. Dr. Willy Legrand and Berkeley Capital Group cooperate on White Paper Series on Sustainable Hospitality
In cooperation with Berkeley Capital Group, we are discussing a tool to achieve this carbon neutral future. The marginal reduction cost curve (MACC) was originally developed by consultants from McKinsey over a decade ago. In this white paper, we present examples of energy efficiency-focused investment costs in a hotel, discounting savings over the expected lifetime of the investment (net present value) and taking emissions into account. overall carbon savings over this period. The results provide investors, owners, executives and managers with a robust financial and environmental decision-making tool, combining financial return on investment with avoided carbon emissions. This is particularly relevant now with the hospitality sector emerging from a pandemic facing major capital constraints and with a strong focus on stabilizing cash flow – this tool enables decision makers to honor the commitment to decarbonization. reducing the most carbon emissions for the lowest cost.
