Kolkata, India – March 24, 2023 – The International Institute of Hotel Management (IIHM) completed 30 years on March 15. As a part of its commemoration, IIHM has announced its pledge to support the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and bring together 60 countries to join in this effort.
The SDGs are a set of 17 goals that aim to eradicate poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all. IIHM recognizes the importance of achieving these goals, and has committed to playing an active role in their realization, especially in the hospitality industry.
Dr Suborno Bose, the Founder and Chief Mentor of IIHM, expressed his enthusiasm for this initiative, stating: “30 years ago, we started a journey to create a world-class institute that could nurture young minds and provide them with the skills and knowledge they need to excel in the hospitality industry. Today, we are proud to have accomplished this mission and to have produced many talented graduates who are making their mark in the industry. But we know that there is still much more work to be done. By pledging to support the SDGs and bringing together 60 countries to join us in this effort, we are taking an important step towards creating a more sustainable and equitable future for all.”
IIHM will be signing MOUs with educational institutes in 60 countries to pledge for the attainment of SDGs by 2030. IIHM has always believed that, for a sustainable future, it is the young who need to be sensitised the most because they are the workforce of the future.
IIHM’s commitment to the SDGs is a testament to its dedication to making a positive impact on society and the world at large. As the institute looks forward to the next 30 years, it will continue to strive towards excellence in hospitality education while also actively contributing to the achievement of the SDGs.
