The Sustainable Hospitality Committee launched “Green Voice” in 2012 as the sustainable educational brand for NEWH. The success has been tremendous. Conferences around the country are looking to include Green Voice Conversations in their programs.

“Green Voice can bring together people from a variety of disciplines to create a unique conversation that appeals to everyone’s environmental common sense.”—DAVID MAHOOD

“When you come to a Green Voice seminar you are going to be hearing from experts in the field. I always come away from a Green Voice session with new insights and ideas that I can apply to my work.”—GARY GOLLA

Sustainability Reboot: An Accelerating Era of Innovation (in the Absence of Regulations)

Some of the best advances and innovation in the world of sustainability happen in the vacuum of government regulation or support. In recent years, sustainability in the built environment has evolved beyond a mere collection of ponderous rating systems to navigate, and has exploded to encompass a whole range of focus areas, technologies, and business models, from solar microgrids, to autonomous and electric vehicles, and from human health and well-being to behavioral economics. We should expect these trends to continue at an accelerated rate, and hospitality projects tend to be some of the best opportunities for these ideas to play out.

In this talk, Josh will explore these topics, and discuss his experience in working with a variety of project types that are actively working on implementing all of these ideas.

Promoting Health & Sustainability Through Material Selection

Market change is underway as building owners, designers, and building product manufacturers respond to a growing awareness of the impact of material selection on human and environmental health. Similar to the food industry, transparency has become critical in paving the way for healthier choices and transparency — product and building certification systems such as Declare, Cradle to Cradle, LEED, WELL, etc. are revealing the impacts of chemicals in building products and motivating design teams to be more and more discerning.

How can hospitality projects address health and wellness through material choices? How are manufacturers working with their supply chains to address these growing customer demands and which certifications are proving to be the most valuable? In this session, Ashley will share the challenges, opportunities, and lessons learned from experience working with both project teams and product manufacturers, including highlights from projects and products that have achieved best practices and received various forms of certifications for material and environmental health.
