38 EMS Environmental Benefits Fully-utilise resources & reduce utility costfully-utilise natural resourcesreduce energy consumptionCreditability for loans & insuranceHotel with lower environmental risks can obtain project financing more easily, at more favourable conditions, & insurance at lower cost.
39 EMS Environmental Benefits Compliance to Environmental Legislationmanage environmental aspects effectively can reduce legal liability to prosecutionPrevent accidentsidentify potential for & respond to accidents & emergency situation.Preventing & mitigating the environmental impacts that may be associated with themreduce loss or damage in case of accident
