Responsible Business

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.


IHG Green Engage system
Helping our hotels become greener


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.
