Sustainable Strategies for Hotel & Resort Operations:
An innovative new training program at UH Maui College
Join an immersive training program in sustainability best practices designed for hotel and resort operations. This will include a high-level overview of sustainability rating systems, such as LEED EBOM, Hawaii Green Business Program, Trip Advisor Green Leaders Program, Green Key, and Portfolio Manager. Particular emphasis will be placed on Trip Advisor’s Green Leaders Program and Green Key Rating System to prepare participants to complete an experiential learning project.
Four employees per resort OR three employees per resort and one assigned trainee vetted by the Sustainable Living Institute of Maui (SLIM) will participate in a Sustainable Strategies Team Project supervised by instructors from Green Building Hawaii (30-hrs per participant). Each resort team will produce a baseline analysis allowing participating resorts to identify a detailed path for pursuing a new certification or improving their existing certification under Trip Advisor’s Green Leaders Program or the Green Key Rating system.
Participate via Polycom or send your Green Teams to Maui for class and site visits. Green Building Hawaii is also available to visit your property during the course for an additional fee. Please inquire for details.
