Pernod Ricard launched free online sustainable and responsible bartending training modules. The courses are accessible to all legal-drinking-aged adults, through the EdApp mobile learning platform, as part of the EducateAll initiative in collaboration with UNITAR (United Nations Institute for Training and Research). EducateAll is a global initiative designed to democratize learning and increase global access to high-quality adult education. The joint initiative of UNITAR and EdApp has established a free global course library, already hosting approximately 50,000 lessons daily.
The course is available worldwide and targets both bartenders and bar owners to educate them on sustainable and responsible practices for the greener and more inclusive ‘The Bar World of Tomorrow.’
Pernod Ricard, through its in-house training group Pernod Ricard University, has developed the courses in partnership with anti-waste bartending duo TrashTiki and the Sustainable Restaurant Association. It covers all aspects of sustainability and responsibility – from fresh ingredient use to responsible serving of alcoholic beverages to waste management – directly aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It is based on four pillars (ingredients, service, bar and staff) and assesses each through the 5Rs model: Rethink, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and Respect.
Embedded in the online training platform and available as a stand-alone course on EducateAll is the dedicated e-learning Alcohol and Responsible Drinking. This course, developed by Pernod Ricard, focuses on what alcohol it is, differentiates myths from facts and equips users with knowledge to encourage responsible drinking.
