March 2017 – Sustainable tourism mainstreaming is taking place in India, with events throughout the country, led by GSTC member Root Cause Media / GreenOtels with the support and guidance of GSTC Board Member and India Country Representative, CB (Ram) Ramkumar.

GreenOtels is doing something that has not been done until now in India – bringing maintenance engineers of hotels together hotel owners, CEOs, and general managers, under one forum where sustainability practices are discussed and promoted, especially through the GSTC Criteria.

The GreenOtels events are high-level, multi-stakeholder forums to catalyze, mobilize and mainstream action on sustainable practices in hospitality. It provides a framework to bring governmental, business and civil society leaders together to secure concrete commitments and action in support of the Green Industry agenda.

In February and March, events have taken place in Bangalore, Jaipur, Chennai, and Cochin, with more to follow.
