In the lead up to the Future Hospitality Summit (FHS) in Dubai next week, Jonathan Worsley, Chairman of The Bench and organizer of FHS, caught up with Ufi Ibrahim, Founder & CEO, Energy and Environment Alliance (EEA), and Dr. Shamir Ghumra, Head of Building Performance Services at BREEAM, for a conversation on how to make the hotel industry more sustainable.

Sustainability and ESG strategy are high up on the agenda at FHS with several sessions dedicated to the topic throughout the three-day summit.

In this episode of HNtv Insiders, Ufi Ibrahim and Dr. Shamir Ghumra speak with Jonathan as a prelude to their panel on Day 2 of the conference titled: "Data Driven Sustainable Investments & Regulations Driving Change - From Green Washing To Science Based Benchmarks."

They share valuable insights on how their respective organizations support and promote ESG to the hospitality industry, what legislation is expected to reach and impact the sector, and what environmental, social and governance responsibilities this will bring to hotel owners and operators.
