Hoe wij aan de SDG's werken
Hotelschool The Hague finds it important to contribute to the UN Sustainable Development Goals, with the aim to achieve a better, more hospitable and more sustainable future for all. These goals address global challenges we all face. Hotelschool The Hague would like to achieve societal relevance, by focusing on the following four goals:
3 – Good health and well-being
4 – Quality education
11 – Sustainable cities and communities
12 – Responsible consumption and production
By implementing these in our curriculum and daily practices, we want to guarantee that each graduate of our school - as future leader of our industry - has enough knowledge and skills to 'create hospitable futures' which means to lead and operate hospitality companies in a commercial, yet socially responsible and sustainable way". As part of that, we joined the SDG charter as well.
Zo dragen wij bij aan de SDG's
At Hotelschool The Hague, we believe in creating hospitable futures together. Futures in which we take our responsibility to inspire our community to make an impact, for example by reducing food waste. With our great community of students, staff, alumni and industry partners, we already created impact through: Food Rescue actions where we have saved over 40,000 kilos of food, numerous impactful P.A.T.E. projects, the elimination of plastic disposables, reducing our coffee cup usage with more than 30% and by joining the SDG charter.
