The City of Sydney’s sustainability programme has been recognised around the world as a leader in improving the impact industries have on the environment. The programme’s latest idea is to tackle the growing impact of accommodation providers by asking corporate travel buyers to include rating requirements in RFPs.
City of Sydney sustainability engagement manager Pip Harley recently spoke at the CAPA-ACTE Global Summit & Corporate Lodging Forum and explained what buyers and accommodation providers can do to improve their footprint.
The Blue Swan Daily also caught up with Pip on the sidelines of the forum to delve further into this important programme.
