Sustainable Hospitality Roadmap x Pathway to Net Positive Hospitality
At the time of the Turning Food Waste into Business Opportunity – Breakfast Seminar & Business Networking event, GREEN Hospitality’s work for the Greater Bay Area x Hong Kong Sustainable Hospitality Roadmap continued underway.
The roadmap focuses on three key areas: energy and infrastructure, waste management and circularity, and sourcing and biodiversity. “Today, 12% of the world’s food waste comes from the hospitality industry and the travel and tourism sector is responsible for one in 11 jobs globally. As the sector is starting to mobilise actions towards net-positive hospitality all over the world, we at GREEN Hospitality are working with the Sustainable Hospitality Alliance to create a comprehensive framework with step-by-step guide so that we can reach the goals set out in the Hong Kong’s Climate Action Plan 2050 and Waste Blueprint for Hong Kong 2035,” said Luciane Zanella, Head of Projects and Partnerships at GREEN Hospitality.
Several hospitality groups are quick to discern the urgency and joined forces with GREEN Hospitality in the Greater Bay Area x Hong Kong Sustainable Hospitality Roadmap project: Rosewood Hong Kong and Hyatt Regency Hong Kong are currently Committee Leaders; Dorsett Hospitality International, The Langham, Hong Kong, and The Hongkong and Shanghai Hotels, Limited have joined as Project Participants; Invest Hong Kong and Sustainable Hospitality Alliance have become the project’s Partners and Supporting Organisations; with industry experts and other partners such as the Hong Kong Green Building Council also supporting the project to align forces.
“Moving along in designing and implementing the Roadmap, we will first establish common targets for each focus area, support planning and decision-making, and align and disseminate our knowledge and insights to amplify the impact by involving as many hotel groups, individual hotels, property managers in Hong Kong, Macau, and GBA as possible,” continued Luciane. “We are looking to launch the Roadmap in November this year. Join us in this collaborative journey towards net positive hospitality.”
