The three aspects – Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) – make up a set of standards used by companies and customers to measure a company’s long-term impact on the environment and society. In Hospitality and Tourism businesses, we face choices which will impact on the environment, we make decisions on supporting a local heritage cause and institutionalizing community volunteer work, and we are responsible for investment decisions, compliance, diversity, inclusion, and transparency.
This executive course offers three modules: (1) Caring for Environment, (2) Creating Positive Impact on Society, and (3) Upholding Good Governance. Each module focuses on one aspect of ESG and together they provide a complete picture of the concepts.
Upon completion of the course, participants should be able to articulate ESG concepts and relate them to Hospitality and Tourism businesses. Participants will be able to identify ESG data source, analyze risks and opportunities. evaluate cost and benefit, and recommend responsible actions for their companies.
Each module is four hours in duration, two hours (10:00-12:00) in the morning and two hours (14:00-16:00) in the afternoon. Participants should allow time in between for project work. The course will be offered in both in-person and online modes.
