EUROPE: The Sustainable Hospitality Alliance and Hotelschool The Hague have teamed up to create a knowledge and training partnership.

The aim of the partnership is to increase positive local impact where hotels operate and concentrate on becoming net positive for people and place.

The collaboration will involve consultations on activities related to the Alliance’s sustainable People and Planet programmes and will drive the development of training modules in areas local to where hotels operate.

Training modules will offer micro-credentials to students and professionals, formalising and acknowledging their learning and new skills.

Hotelschool The Hague has a strong connection with the industry and a solid international reputation in hospitality management.

The institution provides high quality education and research in the field of international hospitality management, with emphasis on the transformation of sustainability and digitalisation.

The Alliance has had a longstanding relationship with Hotelschool The Hague, demonstrated through its global Sustainable Hospitality Challenge.

Regine von Stieglitz, president of the Board of Directors of Hotelschool The Hague said: “At Hotelschool The Hague, we provide our students with the perfect balance of theory, real-world experience and applied research to prepare them for a career in the hospitality industry. 

“We fully embrace their vision to achieve Net Positive Hospitality. In fact, ambitious initiatives are developed at HTH, with a focus on digitalisation & ESGs related to the hospitality industry while addressing key challenges affecting the planet and its people.” 

 Glenn Mandziuk, CEO of the Sustainable Hospitality Alliance said: “The Alliance already has a strong relationship with Hotelschool The Hague, and I’m excited to formalise our collaboration in working towards Net Positive Hospitality.
