PATA to Run Six-Part Sustainability Webinar Series
This first module on Wed 15 February at 1pm BKK time will focus on policy, and will highlight the development and requirements of a good sustainability procedure for organisations who know it's a good idea but don't really know where to start. This can fit in with existing procedures and practices in the workplace. A big added bonus is the identification of cost reduction areas, as well as attracting customers looking for greener travel experiences.
The webinars are free to PATA members and US$100 to non-members. To sign up, visit https://www3.gotomeeting.com/register/927833934

- February 15: Policy and Procedures
- May 30: Risk Assessment
- June 20: Measurement
- July 11: Action
- August 8: How to Implement Sustainable Change
