We've worked with hundreds of clients to calculate thousands of footprints - our experience is unrivalled
The InterContinental Hotels Group – host to over 160 million stays per year – commissioned BFF to provide sustainability metrics on the environmental impact of accommodating their guests. We assessed the carbon and ecological footprints of a sample of their hotels from around the world, and found an almost equal split of emissions between Scopes 1 & 2, and Scope 3. We allocated impacts on a ‘per room night’ basis to allow comparisons between hotels, and found that energy use in the best performing hotel resulted in emissions of 22kg CO2 per room per night, with an average across the group of 59kg CO2 per room per night. Our metrics were the key first step that allowed IHG to understand the footprint of its operations, and strategies are now being developed to “make a night with IHG more carbon efficient”.
