G.R.E.E.N. Hospitality Conference

Catch TPB’s Dr Merrin Pearse when he speaks at G.R.E.E.N. Hospitality conference in Hong Kong.

Designed specifically for the hospitality industry, the G.R.E.E.N. Hospitality Conference encourages businesses to work together to bring sustainable innovations to all aspects and areas of the sector including hotels, supply chains, airlines, food and more.

Merrin will be running a special workshop on single-use plastic strategies, looking at successes and challenges experienced by different hospitality teams in real-life case studies.

With the Hong Kong Tourism Board’s figures showing a 4.9% increase in overnight arrivals to Hong Kong in 2018, and the general optimistic outlook of the city’s hospitality industry, strategic planning and implementation of sustainability measures are critical in minimising the pressure the industry is putting on the environment, society, and labour. The lack of a comprehensive, industry-wide focus on sustainability of all kinds could damage the very assets that the hospitality industry thrives on.

The G.R.E.E.N. Hospitality Conference strives to make the ever-growing tourism and hospitality industry a driver for positive change for people, profit, and the planet.
