Dear ICHRIE SIG Sustainability and Innovation colleagues,

I hope this finds you all well!

These last few months have been packed most notably with the ITB Berlin travel and tourism trade fair and convention – if you wish to check out the discussion, debates and keynotes on the ITB Responsible Tourism day, see the playlist here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLdkWkPxF54jlG2Sw3Y_g8JZF0PxxiInGT

Green claims, net zero, biodiversity restoration, radical changes in tourism are only some of the topics covered.

Upcoming Meeting

The purpose of this email is to ‘save-the-date’ – that is, our next SIG meeting will take place on Friday May 31st at the following times: 18:00CEST 17:00GMT 12:00EDT 09:00AM PDT

I am thrilled to then welcome Isabel Lissner, Business Product Manager & Senior Sustainability Manager (here on CC)  at BeCause.eco (https://because.eco/) as our guest speaker on that occasion.

BeCause.eco has become, in the span of a few years, the company providing a single hub to connect the demand & supply for sustainability data and information flow. If you don’t know the company or what it does, it’s a must attend!

We will spend one hour together which will be an opportunity to also explore the many ‘educational features’ the because.eco platform offers, particularly as it is THE platform that has taken the Sustainable Hospitality Alliance’s Hotel Carbon Measurement Initiative from being an Excel-based form to an online-based tool. I use the HCMI extensively with students and can explain how I find it to work best along the use of the Cornell Hotel Sustainability Benchmark database.

Long story short, mark your calendar: May 31st.

Speak soon and reach out anytime with feedback or requests of course!
