Resource Efficiency Data and Performance Monitoring Tool


This tool allows hotels and supporting organisations to:


  • collect data about resource efficiency
  • monitor their resource efficiency over time to see where any actions they are taking have effects.

The Resource Efficiency tool also provides information that can be used to produce a baseline for the hotels and MICE sector of the tourism industry in a country.

GACMO Hotel mitigation tool for estimating GHG Emissions


The tool allows businesses to :

  •  estimate past/current GHG emissions related to the energy and food activities
  •  estimate GHG emissions reduction potential and costs associated with specific mitigation options

The GACMO tool is also used by government to develop sectoral and national baseline and mitigation scenarios related to the sectors considered in national GHG inventories (for example for developing their Nationally Determined Contributions). The methodologies and calculations for estimating GHG emissions and GHG emissions reduction potentials integrated into the GACMO tool are based on the IPCC methodologies


The Resource Efficiency and the GACMO tools have been developed by UN Environment in cooperation with UNEP DTU Partnership. These two tools are for informational purpose only and the results obtained might not reflect fully the actual costs or capture all of the environmental impact. UN Environment and its partners are not responsible for the consequences of any decisions or actions taken in reliance upon or as a result of the information provided by these tools. UN Environment and its partners are not responsible for any human or mechanical errors or omissions.
