Sustainable Hospitality Alliance is governed by our Board of Trustees. Our activities and strategic direction are guided by our Senior Advisory Council, and supported at an operational level by our Committees and Working Groups. Our Affiliate Advisory Council drives collaboration across the wider industry value chain together with our Senior Advisory Council.

Our member companies each put forward a representative for our Senior Advisory Council or Affiliate Advisory Council and Committees as relevant.

Our day-to-day operations, project development and programme delivery are carried out by our London-based head office, and regional staff in relevant countries around the world.

Our Board of Trustees ensures good governance of the organisation and full compliance with all statutory responsibilities. They approve the annual business plan, strategy and finances. The Board meets four times a year, in person and digitally. Trustees serve in an individual capacity based on their own skillset and experience, and not as company representatives. The Board of Trustees has one sub-committee, covering Finance, Risk and Audit, which is chaired by the Treasurer.
