Announcement from the Green Hospitality Initiative (new date)

The Green Hospitality Initiative (“GHI”), a program funded by the EPA and sponsored by the New York State Restaurant Association Educational Foundation, helps New York restaurants increase both their sustainability and profitability. Through free group and on-site trainings, the GHI assesses current operations and provides individualized reports, specifically for energy reduction, water conservation, and the transition from toxic to non-toxic cleaning chemicals. On Tuesday, June 18th, the GHI will be hosting a group training at the NYSRA offices (1001 Avenue of the Americas, 3rd floor) from 9am-11am, where they will introduce a new format. In addition to presenting on the program and describing it in more depth, they are looking for multiple companies with innovative “green” products and services for the hospitality industry to present to their clients. If you are interested in presenting or attending, or have any questions or concerns, please contact Casey Heil at or 914.329.9840 or Alan Someck at or 516.448.1504.
