Develop your commercial awareness and facilitate your understanding of the key financial competences required to manage a business successfully, such as forecasting and business analysis specifically for the areas of Environmental, Social and Governance in Hospitality.


Who is this for?

This course is ideal for all those staff who are required to plan for, interpret outcomes and report on sustainability and governance. The course is an introduction to developing an ESG strategy which focuses on the environmental, social, and governance risks in operations as well as exploring the cost benefits.

Why should I take part?

There is increasing interest in the role of ESG and the impact on the triple bottom line – profit, people, planet. The commitment to quantifying ESG practices has become progressively more significant for local and central government and for universities and their departments. A clear ESG strategy can lead to not only better financial results but also to better engagement with key stakeholders in the community within which the business operates.

How will it help me?

During the event, you will…

  • Identify your key stakeholders and their ESG priorities for your organisation
  • Review the organisation’s current position
  • Develop a framework for measurement and reporting
  • Set targets for each component of ESG with measurable targets

Following the event, you will…

  • Be able to develop a road map to implement the ESG strategy for your business and measure the impact with KPIs

  • Can I request a course or development day be held at my organisation?

    The TUCO Academy has worked hard to offer all training at a subsidised price, agreeing reduced corporate contract rates with hotels etc. - yet still understands the benefits of in-house training. To that end, working alongside the professional trainers, TUCO Academy can arrange for events to be held at your own institution, for no extra cost.
