As climate change impacts escalate, regulators are increasingly doubling-down on requirements for big businesses and investment funds to disclose and reduce carbon emissions. This is starting to have an impact on the global hotel and hospitality sector, as both business travellers and regular tourists look to make positive environmental choices while still seeking optimal experiences. It’s all about luxury without climate guilt – and for the owners and operators of hotels and resorts, this poses a practical challenge.

Our upcoming online round table, Navigating hospitality’s journey to net zero, will equip operators, owners, and investors in the sector with actionable insight on how to achieve sustainability gains that also reduce operational costs, enhance reputation, and future-proof asset value for the net zero age.

A global panel of experts from Asia, Australia, and the Middle East will discuss key topics including:

  • Government policy and how procurement policies are changing in the lucrative corporate travel market.
  • Hospitality sector’s outlook on net zero targets, initiatives, reporting and sustainability credentials.
  • Elevating guest comfort and wellbeing through energy efficiency upgrades.
  • The role of smart building technology in optimising energy-efficiency, enabling effective performance reporting and streamlining operational management.
  • Options for reducing carbon emissions through switching from gas to electric for cooking, hot water, laundry and space heating.
  • Real world examples from Asia, Australia, and the UAE.

In addition to our speaker presentations and panel discussion, attendees will have the opportunity to participate in a Q&A and receive post-event information to further progress your net zero journey.

The panel discussion will cover topics relevant to various locations in the APAC and MENA region, and the event will be hosted during these respective timezones:

  • MENA: 9:30am
  • Singapore / Hong Kong / China: 1:30pm
  • Australia: 3:30pm
