Defining Life Cycle Inventory, Assessment, Costing, and Management
While Environmental Management Systems (EMS) have been around in the hospitality industry since the early 1990s, there is still a lot ambiguity and variety as to how they are being used. Three reasons for this include:
a lack of clarity as to which facility operations should be monitored,
who is responsible for the monitoring, and
the cheapest and most consistent means to assess, analyze, and track nonfinancial performance goals as requested by investors and clients.
