Carbon accounting technology enables hotel guests to make a green choice




Sydney, 12 April 2010 – CarbonView’s award winning carbon management and accounting software

has been instrumental in The Westin Melbourne’s new “Make a Green Choice” program. The Westin

Melbourne’s initiative, developed in association with CarbonView and carbon offset provider Climate

Friendly, offers hotel guests the option to offset carbon emissions generated through

their stay

or

business event.


After extensive research and measurement of

the

lifecycle of carbon emissions,

The Westin

Melbourne can now measure and project the amount of carbon generated by an event or stay. The

Make a Green Choice program provides guests and clients

with

the option to offset their activity

through a tailored offset fee which is then invested in projects that reduce greenhouse gases.


The carbon measurement and allocation process was

enabled

by the CarbonView software which

provided a robust and detailed calculation of the footprint generated by a guest’s activity at The Westin

Melbourne.


“One of the biggest challenges facing businesses today is the drive to effectively reduce their carbon

footprint.

The Make a Green Choice program offers our clients and guests the ability to make their

business activities carbon neutral and reduce their impact on the environment,”

says

The Westin

Melbourne’s General Manager, Richard Bussiere. 


Leveraging both the CarbonView software and the extended services provided by the CarbonView

team, The Westin Melbourne has also undertaken significant steps to measure and reduce their

organisation’s overall carbon footprint.


Mr Bussiere adds:

“The Westin Melbourne has a

long-term strategy for reducing its overall carbon

footprint. CarbonView has been instrumental in the measurement and monitoring of emissions data

and assisting with the ongoing management of emissions”.
