World Water Day will take place this week (March 22). It is a United Nations program which reminds us of our responsibilities to protect this vital—and limited—resource. Hotels (and their guests) are high water consumers and it is time for them to get more proactive on their water stewardship. Ensuring the availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for everyone on the planet is one of the new SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) which governments and businesses are being asked to implement through combined action. With hotels often sited in exotic locations and water-scarce areas, it’s particularly important that hotel companies also do their bit to ensure water security for everyone. Hotels are generally big water consumers. With pools, golf courses and landscaping all adding to the guest experience—no matter whether the surrounding landscape is arid desert or no—water responsibility is a risk factor. When ITP (the International Tourism Partnership) conducted a survey of more than 200 stakeholders for an event in 2014, water was identified as the highest ranking issue of concern.
