“The challenge for decision-makers in the hospitality sector is defined by the evident increasing global flow of tourists, its projected growth in the near future, and the existence of a flow of tourists who are aware of and interested in the development of sustainability strategies.
Sustainability implies value creation, thus triggering new innovation processes. Moreover, it also means risk management –based on a dialog with stakeholders to anticipate changes in the business environment- and opportunity management –strategies that help achieve new positioning and differentiation in the sector.
The Centro de Estudios en Hotelería Sustentable [Center for Study of Sustainable Hotels] is a space to build knowledge that will promote sustainable strategies and practices in the sector.”
