To join the HOT Coalition, please select your entity type below.
Signatories - Entities that commit to the principles. These include owners of hotel real estate. Their role is to commit to the principles and then follow them. Some entities may play a dual role for both owning hotels and managing hotels for other owners. In this case, they are considered primarily signatories, and then can be listed as Industry Partners (next coalition entity type below) when separate communications around Industry Partners exist.
Industry Partners - Entities with a direct relationship with owners. Their performance directly benefits from owner commitments. These include hotel brands and management companies. Their role is to engage owners to become signatories, and support signatories in implementing the principles. This may also include Signatory entities which are structures organizationally in a role as owner of hotels as well as operator of hotels owned by other entities.
Network Partners - Entities that benefit indirectly from the initiative's success, because it is also aligned with their mission, purpose, or complementary initiatives. These include other sustainability-related initiatives, NGOs, associations, or national tourism organizations. Their role is to provide credibility to the initiative and help disseminate it throughout their networks, further enabling signatories to be recognized.
Supporters - Media organizations, or entities that routinely engage hotel owners directly in the planning, design, development, acquisition, and asset management of hotels.
