Why My Green Butler
is your green solution
Corporate clients are requesting compliance information, governments are requiring carbon auditing, investors are asking for evidence of ESG reporting.
Resource costs are the second-largest category of expenditure, and they are increasing, directly impacting your cash flow.
How you prevent resource wastage, continuously, without major capital expenditure is key to improving financial performance.
Creating a more sustainable business requires full staff support.
How you engage staff to embrace and accept greener operations is a dilemma for managers.
Guest reviews are key to building demand and revenue.
How you promote your sustainability efforts, to create a compelling competitive advantage, must avoid ‘Greenwashing’.
Operational change needs to involve your guests in order to be successful and to have sustained impact over time.
How you promote and achieve this while adding value to the guest experience is a quest for all.
Carbon offsetting is a last resort to decarbonise. It can take 80 years for a tree to counteract the original carbon emitted.
How you decarbonise quickly and cost-effectively is a challenge that requires detailed operational insight.
We help you turn these challenges into marketing advantage.
We help you make sustainability profitable.
What makes My Green Butler unique?
My Green Butler harnesses the human spirit of hospitality by involving those who matter the most: you, your staff, and your guests.
We also have our own team of butlers too!
Most approaches to measuring, monitoring, and managing resource lean solely on technology to solve an engineering problem. Or operating frameworks that rely only the reading of invoices or the manual reading of meters . Or they involve only a few team members applying greener practices.
No tool addresses the fact that resource decisions in tourist accommodation are made by human beings, by you, the managers, your staff, and of course your guests.
Our secret recipe...!
Engaging and motivating staff
What does My Green Butler look like?
The My Green Butler service utilises specifically chosen, innovative communication channels such as guest ecofeedback, staff gamification, and streamlined operational dashboards that appeal to the different ways in which we, as humans, acquire, interpret, and apply new knowledge.
Gamification - the use of game-like features to increase the engagement of users - assists My Green Butler in motivating guests and staff to make savings. It makes learning actions fun and positively challenging, allowing users to feel they are contributing to a good cause and are part of a group effort, amongst other positive outcomes.
We communicate through multi channels to managers, staff and guests through:
web app to mobile phone, tablet, desktop
daily paper report
in-room TV channel
interpersonal communication through our staff training programme
By combining top industry knowledge with the latest gamification innovations, My Green Butler offers you the following features in a comprehensive and holistic system:
My Green Butler eliminates the need for expensive hardware. It easily integrates with hard-wired legacy BMS to quickly turn your property into a SMART greener and more advanced hospitality business using LoRaWAN, MBus and ZigBee protocols.
Without people, hospitality does not exist.
By leveraging this all-important human element My Green Butler offers the most versatile and comprehensive platform to connect resource use and monitoring with the human dimension without the need to hire costly additional staff, as it maximises the productivity of your existing team.
Put quite simply, My Green Butler is a game changer that delivers sustainable hospitality progress right from the start.
