Caring for the environment and the communities where we work and doing the right things in the right way goes hand-in-hand with creating Great Hotels Guests Love. It’s all part of being a Responsible Business. It’s about making a positive impact on the world around us while building our business. We’re talking better communities, better environment and better lives. So when you pick an IHG hotel you’re choosing a brand that cares about the same things you do.
Our online sustainability management system shows hotels what they can do to reduce their impact on the environment, from using less energy and conserving water to reducing waste. Using the IHG Green Engage™ system to track their environmental performance and taking action to improve it also helps hotels manage costs. The environment benefits and our guests get to stay at a hotel that shares their values.
Through our IHG® Academy programme we link up with education providers and community groups around the world to give local people the skills they need to land a job in the hospitality industry. When they graduate many of them end up working in one of our hotels. It’s all part of our commitment to create jobs and stimulate economic development in the communities where we live and work.
Our disaster relief programme equips our hotels to act quickly and decisively to support guests, colleagues and local communities when disaster strikes. Through our strategic partnership with CARE we can access a wealth of experience and support on the ground. We can also allocate funds from the IHG® Shelter Fund at a moment’s notice, providing financial support, vital supplies and accommodation to help people get back on their feet.
