Titel / Title: How can a destination resort development company be strategic in sustainable development?
Abstrakt Abstract:

Although sustainable development is becoming a strategic priority for
some organizations, many do not apply it as a business strategy like
traditional objectives. Sustainability requires a calculated and streamlined
approach, specifically, a clear vision of success and a comprehensive plan
to achieve success. Intrawest Corporation is currently looking at
integrating sustainable development into their practices in both their real
estate and resort divisions. Whistler Blackcomb, implemented several
environmental and community-based initiatives but has yet to take a
company-wide approach to sustainable development. In this study,
Whistler Blackcomb and Intrawest’s sustainability initiatives were
evaluated based on a scientific definition of sustainability. The paper
explores how a resort destination company can strategically integrate
sustainability into their business operations. The objective is to highlight
Whistler Blackcomb and Intrawest as case studies to understand how a
company can gauge their awareness, identify challenges and
opportunities, and move towards being a more environmentally excellent,
socially just and economically viable company.
