FHRAI partners with the Sustainable Hospitality Alliance for net positive hospitality in India


FHRAI joins the Sustainable Hospitality Alliance to push India towards net positive hospitality, emphasizing sustainability and community impact.

In a move to advance sustainability in India, the Federation of Hotels and Restaurant Associations of India (FHRAI), the world’s third-largest hospitality association, has joined forces with the Sustainable Hospitality Alliance (the Alliance).

This partnership, announced at the ‘Travel for Life – Tourism Sustainability Summit 2024‘, signals a major step forward for India’s hospitality industry and its journey towards achieving net positive hospitality – where the industry contributes more than it consumes to the destination.

Glenn Mandziuk, CEO of the Alliance, is enthusiastic about the possibilities this partnership brings. “As the world’s hospitality industry drives towards a more sustainable future, I am delighted to welcome FHRAI to our community. This is a milestone for the Alliance, and will undoubtedly support India’s climate action and bring its vast hotel and restaurant sector towards Net Positive.”

Pradeep Shetty, President of FHRAI said, “We are thrilled to share a significant development in the sustainability commitment of our industry through our partnership with the Sustainable Hospitality Alliance. We are starting an exciting journey together to reshape the hospitality industry in India. This collaboration demonstrates our strong commitment to reducing our environmental impact while optimising our beneficial influence on the communities we serve”.

The Alliance, representing over 50,000 hotels and 7 million rooms globally, will collaborate with the FHRAI, acting as a champion for innovation and climate action in the industry. Both organisations plan to work on joint projects and share knowledge, leveraging each other’s tools and programmes to promote best practices within India’s hospitality sector.

The FHRAI provides a crucial link between the hospitality industry, political leadership, academics and international associations, creating a platform for dialogue and thought leadership within the industry.
