Sustainability is an ever-evolving and often overwhelming issue facing the business travel and relocation industry.
As part of the CHPA Global Sustainability Series, our CEO Jo Layton joined a panel of industry professionals to discuss and debate the different approaches to sustainability planning in corporate housing and extended stay, and how it is impacting in 2022 and 2023 for travel buyers and with procurement decisions.
The professionals all agreed - It is time to shift our mindsets and drive on this journey together.
Jo discussed the need for the industry to have a standardised measure of emissions in our industry – ‘much like having the calories on a menu in a restaurant, as agents, we will ask our providers for the rate, the taxes and ‘emission count’ for the stay’
Jo added ‘if we do not work collaboratively, and with global solidarity, our industry will suffer in the long-term’ answering the need to create a pathway to collaboration across the globe.
Moderated by Peggy Smith CIO for National Corporate Housing, joined by dynamic panelists James Fry from Beyond Apartments & Aparthotels, Dominic Offer Director of Sustainability for Bristol Global Mobility, Karl Thuge CRP President Nomad Temporary Housing and Debbie Woodley CCHP Vice President – Global Supply Chain, Dwellworks Living.
