Webinar: Could Sustainability be the Future of Luxury?

Luxury and sustainability

Luxury and sustainability: two opposing concepts? At first glance, perhaps. After all, the word luxury derives from the Latin word “luxus” and evokes images of ‘pomp, excess and debauchery’. Whereas sustainability, by definition, invites us to ‘meet the needs of the current generation without compromising the ability of future generations to meet theirs’.The codes of luxury in travel have changed, listen to our webinar and learn from champions of sustainability who have redefined true luxury.
