Hong Kong & Greater Bay Area Sustainable Hospitality Roadmap
GREEN Hospitality has recently launched a collaborative initiative to integrate and accelerate sustainability as a core value across the hospitality ecosystem in Hong Kong, Macao, and the Greater Bay Area. This initiative aims to foster innovation and use sustainability as the main driver of business competitiveness for the region. Key players in the hospitality industry, such as Rosewood Hotel Group, The Hongkong and Shanghai Hotels, Langham Hospitality Group, Dorsett Hospitality International, and InvestHK, along with several subject matter experts, have congregated to accelerate this agenda across the sector.
The project will run throughout 2023 and culminate with a regional conference. It aims to align with the 'Pathway to Net Positive Hospitality' framework recently launched by the Sustainable Hospitality Alliance, while also integrating the specific local needs, challenges, and opportunities faced by the sector. The focus areas will be Energy & Infrastructure, Waste Management & Circularity, and Sourcing & Biodiversity.
At the conference, common targets will be formalized, and comprehensive guidelines will be launched that can be followed by any hospitality group, regardless of size. If you want to learn more about how to get involved, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Waste Reduction Program for F&Bs
Our current project named - "Zero-waste to Landfill for the F&B Industry: Creating Circular Systems Through Education, Practice & Partnerships" is funded by Environment and Conservation Fund*. The project entails familiarising 20 F&B outlets in Hong Kong’s SOHO area with the upcoming municipal solid waste (MSW) charge through training and waste monitoring.
Guided by the Environmental Protection Department, the participating F&B outlets will get trained on waste segregation practices so as to divert the amount of waste going to landfills and promote the culture of ‘use less, waste less & recycle’. The engagement with F&B outlets under this programme will be from June to November 2022.
