This is the first Resource Fix, a new feature from Hyatt hotels recently reported an improvement in “waste intensity.” Hyatt is just one company measuring waste in terms of intensity rather than just overall amount. HBSC, for example, measures tons of landfilled waste per full-time equivalent employee. Many companies measure waste per dollar of sales. What’s interesting about Hyatt’s approach though is that it measures against guest nights, or a proxy for customer benefits. It’s still focuses on by-products rather than resource use, but it’s a step in the right direction.
