Destinations Together and The Global Sustainable Tourism Council are hosting a Hotel Sustainability & GSTC Standards Webinar on March 17 at 9 am EST. This session will round out a four-part series on sustainable tourism by looking at contemporary approaches for more sustainable hotels. As with previous sessions on destinations and tour operators, the webinar will consider the valuable role of applying the GSTC Criteria to the hotel industry.
Speakers: Randy Durband, GSTC CEO, will lead the session, along with Ian Corbett TUI Group Sustainable Business Manager.
GSTC works with members that include Hilton, IHG, TUI Group Hotels, and many other hotels, plus buyers and sellers of hotel space seeking sustainable solutions, including OTA’s such as booking.com and tour operators such as Canada’s Transat. Hotels are in many ways core building blocks of visitor experiences – a home away from home. There is much being done and can be done to make those deep experiences more responsible and sustainable. Join us for a discussion of key strategies taken by hotels and their networks to operate and communicate sustainability.
