SHATEC has joined the Global Sustainable Tourism Council (GSTC) as a member, following closely in the footsteps of Singapore Tourism Board (STB), and in line with Singapore’s plan for sustainable tourism through the Hotel Sustainability Roadmap by Singapore Hotel Association (SHA) and STB.
As a GSTC member, SHATEC seeks to create an ecosystem for training, development and implementation of innovative solutions and ideas to catalyse the industry’s agenda on sustainability.
SHATEC’s CEO Lim Boon Kwee shared: “We will work closely with strategic partners and agencies to deliver courses such as improvement strategies in water and energy conservation, waste management and sustainable sourcing. We will also repurpose our role as a training provider to provide a platform for technology and innovation showcase, creating learning communities in support of the local hospitality enterprises’ sustainability journeys.”
The membership is another milestone in the institution’s sustainability roadmap, coined Sustainability@SHATEC, which connects a tripartite network of industry, students and organisation in advocating sustainability development goals in hospitality.
