Last September 7th, I participated at the roundtable SUSTAINABILITY ROUNDTABLE, which was held at the School of Hotel Administration, SC Johnson College of Business at Cornell University, Ithaca, USA.
The event was chaired by Professors Rohit Verma, Dean of External Relations, SC Johnson College of Business - Singapore Tourism Board Distinguished Professor in Asian Hospitality Management, and Jeanne Varney, Lecturer, School of Hotel Administration, SC Johnson College of Business.
The purpose of the Center for Hospitality Research is to enable and conduct research of significance to the global hospitality and related service industries. CHR also works to improve the connections between academe and industry, continuing the School of Hotel Administration's long-standing tradition of service to the hospitality industry.
At the event, over 100 participants discussed issues about the accelerators and inhibitors for ownership investment in hotel sustainability initiatives facilitator and opportunities for synergies and collaboration.
