Green FF&E Purchasing in Hospitality Drives Demand From Corporate Travel Executives.

Conducted among corporate travel executives from Fortune 1000 companies, the study found that sustainable purchasing of furniture, fixtures and equipment (FF&E) is among the most important criteria for evaluating hotel sustainability.

Sixty-five percent of corporate travel executives responsible for over $10MM in annual travel budgets are in various stages of implementing green business travel guidelines. Representing a variety of industries -- ranging from technology and business services to manufacturing and financial services -- the majority of these “green” corporate travel buyers choose from mid-scale hotel properties.

When asked to define hotel sustainability, only two percent of those surveyed mentioned the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED® certification.

“LEED® certification is an important and highly valuable contribution to the building and operating performance of hotels. However, the average guest has no idea what LEED® is or what benefit it has on their hotel experience,” said JoAnna Abrams, Chief Executive Officer of MindClick SGM.

Survey participants were asked to evaluate two recently renovated mid-scale name brand hotel properties, both of which minimized their environmental impact through sustainable operating practices. One hotel renovated with sustainable FF&E products and gave examples of how doing so benefited hotel guests’ health, well-being, and comfort.

When asked which hotel they would select for their employees, 80 percent chose the hotel with sustainable FF&E products. Additionally, 75 percent would be willing to pay a premium of as much as 5 percent if they knew their employees experienced more restful sleep and felt more productive and healthy after their stay.

“Given that travelers are willing to pay a premium for extra leg room when flying, it makes sense they would pay more for a better night’s sleep,” says Abrams.

By making environmentally preferable purchasing choices, hotels can select materials and furnishings that provide guests with a healthier more comfortable experience.

The study also indicated that among the corporate travel executives surveyed, no brand emerges as a leader in sustainability.

“With significant growth in hotel renovations anticipated for 2011, hotels have an opportunity to achieve industry leadership, improve the guest experience, and gain share through sustainable FF&E purchasing,” said Abrams.
