    using like

    here is my essay thesis statement. My question is about using proper like. If there is a mistake at this sentence related to like, Could you please tell me how can i correct it?

    Protecting our environment is the most important reason to become a green hotel for hoteliers; however, besides protecting our environment, there are many additional factors for being a green hotel, like reducing water and energy consumption, reducing costs and making more profit.

    Thank you,

    Re: using like

    It doesn't seem to be wrong because here you use "like" as a preposition and then after you use a word "reducing" as a noun and it is a right construction. Therefore I don't consider it, it is wrong.
