The Sustainable Spa Association Global Survey
It is a time of huge global change. We believe that during these difficult times we must not to lose sight of the importance of environmental sustainability and our impact on the planet.

The SSA is undertaking the first-ever Global Survey into sustainability. By collecting a substantial amount of industry-specific data, we will gain important insights into attitudes, knowledge and implementation of sustainability.
By taking part, you are part of a generation of spa professionals who wish to contribute to global spa business behaviour in the light of sustainable business practices.

As a spa professional, your input is invaluable. We hope you can give us 5 minutes of your precious time to help us make a difference to our planet and future generations.

The results will help us form the strategy, education and goals for the year ahead.
We plan to publish the results of our survey in January 2021 and as a registered contributor, you will have exclusive access to our findings in advance of general publication.

Your survey responses will be strictly confidential and data from this research will be reported anonymously and only in the aggregate.

This study is designed for input from Spa Team Members.

Your email address is part of the authentication and verification of the research and you will only be contacted afterwards if you opt in at the end of the survey.

The survey is open from 15th October - 26th November and the winners of the rewards will be announced between December 28th -Jan 1st.
