The Bar World of Tomorrow is a professional training program operated by the Pernod Ricard Group for bar owners and bartenders around the world with a view to helping establish a more sustainable bar culture. In Seoul, the program has been open to bartenders and managers aged 19 or above who work in bars, hotels and restaurants. Since starting in January, around 300 people (including bartenders, bar owners, and university students aged 19 or above) have completed the course as members of the first through eighth classes.
The ‘Bar World of Tomorrow’ training program is evaluated to have increased practicality and feasibility by inviting bar owners who operate sustainable eco-friendly bars as instructors. The training offered by Seo Jung-hyun, the owner of bar ‘Jangseng Geongangwon’ who shared ways to apply eco-friendly processes to bar operations, and Park Ji-soo, the owner of ‘Zest Bar’ in Cheongdam, which is well-known for its zero-waste pursuits, join the training to share insights on the sustainable practices that can be introduced to bar operations. It also has become an opportunity to strengthen networking in the bartender community by providing time to discuss the insights of participants on the sustainable business operation and sustainable hosting.
Meanwhile, Pernod Ricard Group has set its 2030 Sustainability & Responsibility roadmap, ‘Good Times from a Good Place’ which is being implemented in all its subsidiaries around the world as part of its efforts to fulfill its commitment to environmental protection and sustainable management in all its business areas.
