Sign Up to Take the H2Otel Challenge
With independently certified WaterSense labeled products and other best management practices, you can reduce water use and operating costs at your hotel while still ensuring customer satisfaction. Taking the Challenge is easy—all you have to do is ACT (assess, change, and track):
- Assess water use and savings opportunities
- Change products or processes to incorporate best management practices
- Track water–saving progress and achievements.
The Challenge is designed for any individual hotel with five rooms or more. Hotel chains and management groups can sign up their individual facilities. All hotels that sign up will benefit from the following free resources:
- Technical resources, including WaterSense's Water Use and Savings Evaluation Tool (WaterUSE Tool)—a spreadsheet designed to help hotel operators and facility managers assess their water use and identify and prioritize best practices to implement.
- Technical and outreach webinars—nine recorded webinars on hotel water-saving topics from 2014 and live webinars starting in June 2015.
- Recognition tools, including a participant logo and a signed certificate of participation.
- Monthly emails with quick tips on how to save water, energy, and operating costs.
- Case studies and lessons learned from other hotels that successfully saved water.
To start saving water, tune in to the second in our series of training webinars, "A for Assess: Setting Goals and Developing a Water Management Plan," which will be held on Thursday, August 27, starting at 2:00 p.m. Eastern. In this webinar, WaterSense will help participants develop water use reduction goals and prepare a water management plan based on a facility water assessment.
