PHIST Event Lands HICAP Sustainable Award

Category: Hotels, Posted:15 Sep 2020 | 09:36 am

HICAP (Hotel Investment Conference Asia Pacific) today announced winners for their annual sustainable awards.

The Phuket Hotels Association together co-organizers Greenview and C9 Hotelworks were one of two winners in the Positive Community Impact category for the PHIST (Phuket Hotels for Islands Sustaining Tourism) event.

According to HICAP the award was based on the following “PHIST is a first-of-its-kind, innovative annual event rallying the hotel industry and its stakeholders for sustainability and community benefit. Attracting over 1,000 delegates annually, PHIST serves as a model for sustainability gatherings, offering free admission and integrating local students and speakers of diverse age, gender and ethnicity alongside top hotel and travel professionals in a high-energy event challenging the status quo and driving an action agenda, not just talk. For the inaugural event, 71 hotels signed the “Phuket Pledge” to eliminate single-use plastic bottles resulting in a 51% reduction and 4.4 million bottles avoided in 2019. The Great Big Green Guide, a collection of eco-friendly ideas and practices, was also launched during the event. PHIST also works to inspire the next generation with a series of children’s workshops and activities.”

Given today is our PHIST 2020 virtual event, we’d like to say that our mission is continuing to advocate sustainability now more than ever for hotels and tourism and our work is only beginning in this important endeavor. #fight4Phuket.
