Commitment to Action

Academic Model to Boost Higher Education and Industry

Commitment by

Ecole hôteliere de Lausanne

In 2013, the Ecole hoteliere de Lausanne committed to fully and systematically integrate the concept of Sustainable Hospitality at all levels of its educational programming in order to develop a highly trained cadre of 3,000 students capable of implementing these practices throughout the global hospitality industry. Over the long-term, EHL will develop a campus that successfully integrated innovations in technical expertise, service delivery and advances in logistics. The incorporation of advantages in these topics will be a continuous process that will be used as applied examples for the hospitality industry in order to test, verify and teach the most interesting new technologies and best practices in the field of Sustainable Development in relation to the hospitality industry. To incorporate all that EHL will learn as part of this endeavor, it will also organize the first World Economic Hospitality Forum in fall 2014.
