WHY We Must Act NOW

At this most urgent of times, there is greater expectation for business to lead and do good, address societal problems and demonstrate commitment to sustainability with long-term thinking over short-term gain. At the forefront of our attention must be the critical time available to reach zero emissions (our “Deadline”), do better by aiming to be Climate Positive, and ensure a rapid and just transition to a safe climate and regenerative future.

Spotlight on NOW Hotel Members

Our guests travel to this beautiful location in the heart of the Swiss Alps for its unspoiled flora and fauna, the crystal-clear mountain streams and the majestic glaciers. The vulnerability of this sensitive environment requires us to reflect critically on our business and the affect of our actions.

The Alpina Gstaad has decided to join the NOW Force for Good Alliance, striving to be an active frontrunner in sustainable luxury tourism.

Tim Weiland - General Manager of The Alpina Gstaad, Switzerland

It was clear that NOW would take us on a focused and thorough sustainability journey and we specially like the idea of  striving towards an accreditation for our actions.

It created a lot of work initially and made us think hard about what we did and didn’t do, answer tough questions and commit to the right way forward. We realized the good things we were doing and highlighted the many gaps which we are now rapidly closing. Our young team want their work place to take the right steps to reduce waste and do the right thing for the environment. Guests notice and a few applauded us for our actions.

We are aiming high in all that we do and this includes our sustainability goals. NOW is most definitely proving to be a Force for Good.

We are very happy to be collaborating with NOW and starting on our sustainability journey.

As an industry we all need to be making steps to become more sustainable and NOW is an excellent force driving this initiative. The exercise proved very useful in highlighting the areas where we can make positive changes and I am excited to begin our commitment to a sustainable future.

Message from NOW Chairman & CEOOnno Poortier

NOW Strategic Partners

EarthCheck is extremely excited to be working with the NOW team. We are impressed with their passion to advance sustainability and responsible business practices in the travel and tourism industry and for their commitment to raise the bar on industry reporting standards.

As an industry we need to embrace the need for transformative change. Greenwash and the acceptance of poor environmental and social performance are no longer acceptable. NOW will ask the right questions and provide insights and advice on what best practice really looks like. Tourism desperately needs an open and honest conversation on sustainable business practices. NOW will provide that.

Stewart Moore, Founder & CEO, EarthCheck

NOW is right along the line with our own philosophy and engagements for sustainability & eco-luxury in the hospitality industry. We are also concerned regarding ‘green-wash’, the misuse and manipulation of ‘sustainability’. I believe that our collaboration is a potentially significant and important persuasive tool vis-a-vis colleagues who are either not informed or simply still sitting on the fence.
