EEA teams with King’s Business School and EHL for ESG education programme

The Energy and Environment Alliance has partnered with EHL Hospitality Business School and King’s Business School to run an education programme focused on the practical aspects of delivering high ESG standards across the hospitality sector.

Designed specifically for hospitality managers, investors and asset owners, the programme will give participants an overview of the science of climate change as well as an education around its financial implications, including new regulatory requirements and accurate data collection.

King’s Business School and the EEA operate an existing programme for hospitality sector leaders that covers strategic and financial aspects of ESG in the context of the sector’s specific requirements.

The partners say that the new programme will enable organisations to fully embed their ESG plans by ensuring that local leaders have the right skills and knowledge.

What they said

Ufi Ibrahim, chief executive of the Energy and Environment Alliance said: “ESG is rapidly becoming an extremely important issue for anyone involved in hospitality. So I am delighted that two world class business schools are collaborating with the EEA to create what I am confident will be the go-to education on this subject.”

Giana Eckhardt, vice dean, engagement & executive education at King’s Business School added: “The hospitality sector has a truly global reach and those who manage hotels need a unique mix of skills and knowledge from the very technical to the very human. By bringing the expertise of our three organisations together, we hope to leave our participants confident and excited about the opportunity they have to help their staff and customers to flourish and contribute to a healthier planet.”

Stephane Haddad, associate dean, executive education programs at EHL Hospitality Business School added: As the world's largest employer and resource consumer, the hospitality sector is vital to the economy. By working together, we hope to provide asset owners, investors, and managers of hospitality businesses with the information and resources they need to effect positive change in their businesses.  Equipped with this understanding, participants will be able to spearhead revolutionary projects in their daily operations, promoting sustainability, cutting down on waste, and building lasting value for their companies and communities.
