"Asia is the center of the planet's future. It is also the battleground for sustainable development. More hotels are going up in Asia than the rest of the world put together. More people live in Asia who will attain a better quality of life. More resources will be needed in Asia to support this growth than anywhere else. The solutions to the planet's problems will be scaled in Asia."
The HOT Coalition is an open-source, no-cost initiative among the hotel community to advance sustainability. HOT was started to create an easy platform for building awareness and getting the important discussion of sustainability started. If more hotel owners carry out these 5 actions, all coalition members, the hotel industry in general, and the planet will benefit. This website is the main forum for joining and spreading awareness.
The Coalition is made of 4 types of members: Signatories (Owners), Industry Partners (Hotel Companies), Network Partners (Industry Bodies), and Supporters (Media & Hotel Development). Upon joining, resources are provided to each entity type to help them support their efforts through the HOT Coalition.
Currently HOT is being piloted in Asia, and will expand globally in the future. We encourage all entities of these types to join and help hotel owners make a difference.
