Sustaining Tourism - PHIST Interview with Eric Ricaurte, Founder & CEO of Greenview

Exclusive HD video interview with Eric Ricaurte, Founder & CEO of Greenview.

In this interview, filmed at the JW Marriott Phuket Resort & Spa on 25 September 2018, we ask Eric for his thoughts on the inaugural PHIST (Phuket Hotels for Islands Sustaining Tourism) forum which was held at the resort on 24 September.

We discuss PHIST and what the organisers are hoping to achieve as well as what their long term plan for the event is.

 We talk about sustainable tourism and Steven Howard asks Eric whether this is an oxymoron and if sustainable tourism can ever be a reality, or are we beating a dead horse.

Eric also gives us his thoughts on rating systems such as EarthChech and others, and he tells us what role Greenview plays in all this.

We ask Eric why there is so much focus on plastic waste with very few people now talking about paper waste and consequently the ozone layer, climate change and trees. In fact these days, the only time you hear about paper is when hotels tell you that they have switched from single-use plastic straws to single-use paper straws. All this and much, much more in the video and podcast below.
