Dear GMBHA Miami Hoteliers,

We are very excited to announce that the GMBHA Sustainable Hospitality Council has partnered with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’s) WaterSense Hotel Challenge Platform to launch a local initiative for hoteliers, the GMBHA Water Pledge. This initiative aims to reduce water consumption resulting by saving water for future generations and reducing hotel’s utility bill costs. Participating hotel will take a pledge to “ACT”: Assess water use and savings opportunities, Change water-wasting products or processes, and Track water-saving progress and achievements.

As one of the largest contributors to the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) in Miami Dade, the hotel community feels a responsibility to demonstrate OUR commitment to Water Conservation and the Community. We are proud to be the first industry group in Miami Dade to partner with EPA WaterSense program and implement a local hotel pledge for water efficiency in our hotels.  We look forward working to bring our members information that improves water efficiency awareness, helps our environment and promote best practices locally for a better future in our Greater Miami and the Beaches community.

We hope that you will sign up and participate in this wonderful initiative. Please click here for all the necessary information to get you started on the WaterPledge.
