Energy-efficient buildings play a vital role in conserving energy, saving money, and creating comfortable spaces. Additionally, they have a positive environmental impact by emitting fewer greenhouse gas emissions. Advancing green buildings is of paramount importance for achieving the objectives of the Paris Agreement and the Sustainable Development Goals.

The tourism sector, in particular, has a significant role to play in combating climate change. Hotels, being the largest contributors to emissions within the tourism industry, need to reduce their carbon footprint to ensure sustainable growth in Latin America and the Caribbean.

The Programme for Energy Efficiency in Buildings (PEEB) has developed a technical guide focusing on energy efficiency in hotels, specifically targeting those in warm climates, based on the realities of Mexico.

On Thursday 30th March at 9 am (Mexico DC time; 5 pm Paris/Bonn time) a webinar in Spanish will present the guide offering practical advice and specific solutions for efficient energy use in areas such as lighting, air conditioning, hot water, refrigeration, and renewable energy production.

Organized by PEEB in collaboration with SEMARNAT and the Global Alliance for Buildings and Construction (GlobalABC), the webinar aims to share experiences with professionals, helping them plan and implement energy efficiency measures in hotels across Latin America and the Caribbean.

By implementing energy efficiency measures in the tourism sector, we can contribute to a more sustainable future for the hotel industry and work towards mitigating the impacts of climate change in the region.
