MULTI HAZARD AND CLIMATE CHANGE

Our Multi Hazard and Climate Change Certification is based on the Hotel Resilient Standards – the first risk-based multi hazard and climate change standards for hotels and resorts. The standards are the result of a coordinated effort by a wide range of public and private stakeholders, including tourism industry professionals and leading scientists. To achieve certification, Hotels will use the Hotel Resilient online platform to answer key questions on structural and non-structural components of the hotel’s buildings and site; safety systems infrastructure, evacuation and warnings; and management processes for disaster preparedness, response, communication and business continuity. More than 250 indicators are combined to measure the risk and resilience of hotels to natural and technological hazards, including impacts from climate change. Certification proves to guests that a hotel has thought of everything when it comes to safety, now and for the long-term.
