AH&LA creates eco-initiative
Joe McInerney left his position as president and C.E.O. of the Pacific Asia Travel Assn. and returned to the U.S. to serve as the president and C.E.O. of the American Hotel & Lodging Assn. The first thing he asked his new colleagues was their plans for a sustainable tourism industry. He wanted to know what plans were in place for conserving water and energy and for managing waste.
