Develop Sustainability Policy The most concern issue is to save the energy and cut the waste for the hotel. The best practice of energy saving is provided. Examine the equipment: For the purpose of energy saving. Bill must determine which equipment can be disconnected at certain times. The failure to implement this plan is costing money to the Hotel. Firstly, the following things can be proposed by Bill. Install humidity control system in refrigerators to reduce the temperatures by 2 to 4 degrees Reduce the Power energy Lights setting: Replacing existing current light with CFL and LED lights which have more energy efficient ballasts to reduced energy use by 40% Perform Regular maintenance to keep heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems running more efficiently. Maintenance activities can save up to 30% of fan energy and up to 10% of space conditioning energy use. Reduce the water usage: Perform recycle water usage operation. With this we can reduce the water usage. Use sanitizer to clean your hand instead of water. Trained the new staff to run their position with most cost-effective way. Set harsh penalties for incorrect disposal of waste. Switch off the unnecessary lights Plan candle light day in a week which can save electricity These all above practices must be based on different programs such as fundamentals of sustainability and approaches to sustainability, business ready energy efficiency programs or sustainable hotel management programs.

This includes environment approach for the hotel doesn’t reference any legislation or
comply with any relevant environmental law. This includes the AC and lightning reconfiguration. The rate of water, sewerage and electricity is low when compared to the photocopier and printer and wastage. The high wastage is the result of ineffective recycle system. More recyclable paper are used, less waste could be expected. The hotel is considered to be disadvantage on the waste removal service in both recycle and general rubbish. Enhance the photocopier or limit the use of normal toner and paper may be the solutions. Meanwhile, better waste system could be implemented within the firm to reuse the paper sources and maintain the expense economically and environmentally. The new policy to form the new work team is a great idea. There is missing of affirmative action. The executive of problem solving and identify is difficult to proceed. The training sections carried out by the team is sufficient. It leads to the unsuccessful achievement of energy saving. For example one of the new team policies is to encouraging the last staff member leaving each day to turn the AC off. It is barely done since how the staffs know whenever he/she will be
