[Excerpt] As the world we live in becomes flatter and hotter, it is increasingly important to identify sustainability solutions sensitive to local variations and for policies to support those solutions. In this chapter, we offer preliminary evidence on how these local variations may affect sustainability performance in a typical built environment—the hospitality industry—and present the policy implications of these local variations.
