Each commitment will be associated with three SDGs to enhance and another three to mitigate. In addition to this information, each entity will have to define a metric that allows the monitoring of the commitment and the estimated deadline for its implementation. Some examples of commitments:

Replacement of 50% of cleaning products with eco-labeled products, by 2021.

10% reduction in water consumption, through measures to reduce consumption by 2021.

Involve guests in 4 environmental awareness actions at least, each year.
