Green leader and hotel chain The Rezidor Hotel Group publishes its Responsible Business Report. Included since 2010 in Ethisphere’s World’s Most Ethical Companies List, Rezidor is committed to being an innovative and responsible hotel company with leading sustainable hotel brands such as Radisson Blu and Park Inn by Radisson.
The 2020 Think+Change vision came to life in answer to a simple question: as a pioneer and forward thinking company in Responsible Business, how can Rezidor build on our success in this vital area to act as the driving force of an ever more sustainable hospitality industry?
2016 marked an important year globally with the ratification of the COP21 agreement in November and as the first year of implementation of the UN Sustainable Development Goals which are mobilizing businesses, industries and countries. As a leader in the industry, we are conscious that our Responsible Business targets and actions need to contribute to these important global goals.
The year marked an inspiring year for Responsible Business at Rezidor with successes in all core areas of the company’s Responsible Business program. Rezidor closed the successful Think Planet 5-year period with significant water and energy savings.
