Nine employees at Espejo de Luna in Chiloé Island took part in a two-day workshop, and at the end of the training a staff environmental committee was formed.

“[The training] has helped us to deliver an accurate and easy methodology to control the ecological footprint of a hotel,” said Fabiola Marin Salgado, president of Vidau.org.

Go Greener Hotels is a free, web-based training quiz designed to help hotel staff understand why sustainability is important, and how their day-to-day activities can make a difference. The training consists of four modules:

  1. Sustainable tourism – what is it all about?
  2. Protecting the environment
  3. Think local, act local
  4. Communicating with guests

On completing the quiz trainees download a certificate, which can be used as part of a staff training and development programme.
