The Sustainable Hospitality Alliance (the Alliance) has unveiled a ground-breaking Resource Directory at COP28, designed to empower hospitality businesses in their pursuit of sustainable practices and the vision of Net Positive Hospitality.
Introduced by the Alliance’s CEO, Glenn Mandziuk, the Sustainable Hospitality Alliance Resource Directory serves as a crucial link between hotels and sustainable suppliers. It showcases businesses offering products and services that can address ESG challenges and opportunities, supporting both Alliance members and non-members in their sustainability strategies.
Members of the directory gain exposure to influential industry leaders, procurement teams, and sustainability specialists within the Alliance’s extensive global network, as well as reaching the Alliance’s highly engaged digital audience.
With three packages tailored to suit all budgets, companies can demonstrate their commitment to sustainable and responsible practices by including their ESG report, an ESG-related video, and a comprehensive description of their organisation. Additionally, companies can highlight their sustainable products and services, fostering collaboration and innovation within the sector.
In conjunction with the Resource Directory, the Alliance has also launched a Hospitality Member Directory, spotlighting the environmental sustainability and social responsibility efforts of its esteemed hotel members, including Accor, BWH Hotels, Caesars Entertainment, Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts, and Radisson Hotels Group. This directory aims to inspire the wider hospitality industry with best practices and exemplary commitments.
Glenn Mandziuk, CEO of the Sustainable Hospitality Alliance, expresses his enthusiasm for the launch, stating:
“The Resource Directory is a significant achievement for the Alliance and a key component of our five-year strategy to drive Net Positive Hospitality. It serves as a platform for regenerative solutions, fostering collaboration and innovation to achieve our shared sustainability goals. By joining the Resource Directory, companies not only gain access to our global network but also contribute to funding the Alliance’s vital work in supporting the sector and driving positive change.”
The Resource Directory has already attracted a diverse range of participants, including Beyond Bamboo Global Ltd, BVA BDRC, KALDEWEI, MindClick, Pandox, Rabmer GreenTech, Silk Hospitality, TÜV Rheinland Group, My Freda, Responsible Tourism Institute ( and Weeva Solutions.
Tiffany Kelly, CEO and Co-Founder of Beyond Bamboo remarks on the benefits of joining the Alliance’s Resource Directory, stating:

We joined the Alliance as we believe that global collaboration towards using brand buying power to influence supply chain change towards planet-conscious products is essential in delivering the Pathway to Net Positive. We look forward to continuing our work together.”
