Stay at this Bristol green hotel
Taking responsibility for the environment and local community has been an important part of the broader commitment of the Rezidor Hotel Group to sustainable development for many years. In 2001, this commitment was fortified and placed within the scope of a programme called Responsible Business (RB). Each hotel has a unique RB Action Plan covering areas such as community outreach, environmental improvement, employee well-being and health and safety.
The hotels are engaged with both local charity groups and The World Childhood Foundation, an international charity organisation supported by the Rezidor Hotel Group. The mission of The World Childhood Foundation is to defend the rights of the child and to promote better living conditions for vulnerable and exploited children at risk all over the world.
Responsible Business at this Bristol green hotel:
WOW 175 Bristol zoo gorilla project
In honour of the Bristol Zoo's 175th anniversary, the hotel helped sponsor a silverback gorilla sculpture and two additional baby gorilla statues that were given to two local primary schools as part of ongoing education projects. The school children decorated their gorillas, which were given to the hotel as part of the awareness project throughout the summer holidays. Once the holidays were over, the schools received ownership of the gorilla statues. Local artist Laura Cramer worked with the hotel to complete the design of the hotel's gorilla sculpture.
