Green consulting firm Fifty Shades Greener is offering a free online training programme for anyone in the hospitality industry who wants to be a green champion in their workplace.
The Ireland-based business has opened the training course, Become a Green Leader in Your Workplace, to anyone worldwide who works in the hospitality industry.
The programme, which teaches the basic principles of becoming a Green Leader or Green Manager in the workplace, covers the three principles of sustainability, how business impacts the environment, and how to measure and monitor that impact.
The purpose for the programme is to enable hospitality workers with the right knowledge and tools to implement an environmental management system at their workplace, and become a Green Leader in the industry.
Fifty Shades Greener was founded by former hotel manager, Raquel Noboa in 2017 with the aim to teach any hotel manager the first steps towards setting their own environmental management systems.
She said: “It is now, more important than ever, to remember things will get back to normal someday, and using this time to invest in your own professional development will make you more employable and better skilled when that time comes.
“Climate Change is not over, we have simply put in on pause in our minds, as we feel there is something bigger to worry about. But when the tide turns again, we will need Green Leaders of the Hospitality industry all over the world, so we can create a type of industry we are proud off, and that is sustainable for years to come.”
