Responsible Business - Let's take responsibility!

Taking responsibility for the environment and the local community plays an important role for the Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group. All hotels take part in a dedicated Responsible Business programme. 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 corporate international charity organisation supported by the Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group, the World Childhood Foundation. The mission of the Foundation is to defend the rights of the child and promote better living conditions for vulnerable and exploited children all over the world.

Why Responsible Business is important to this hotel
Preserving the environment has become more important as more species of plants and animals become endangered or extinct. Half of the world's population lives on less than 2 USD per day and, by 2025, it is expected that food production will have to double to be able to feed the growing population. Companies like Rezidor have the resources to make a change.
