Sustainable Communities. Better Lives. Corporate Responsibility is central to the way we do business and is a key part of our Responsible Business practices. We treat it as a strategic business issue, believing Corporate Responsibility only makes sense if it aligns to our vision of becoming one of the world's great companies by creating Great Hotels Guests Love. It's about how IHG and our hotels act in our local communities and how we manage our environmental impact.
The environmental impact of our hotels is managed through every stage of the hotel life cycle by IHG Green Engage. IHG Green Engage tracks the use of energy, carbon and water and the management of waste in our properties along with the associated costs. The system helps us fulfill our important commitment to doing business responsibly and, in turn, this stops hotels losing money on energy costs.
The IHG Academy is a collaboration between individuals, IHG hotels, corporate offices, local education providers and/or community organizations. The IHG Academy provides local people with the opportunity to develop skills and improve their employment prospects in one of the world's largest hotel companies. Within a consistent framework, each IHG Academy is tailored to meet the needs of local communities as well as hotels around the world.
Through the IHG Shelter in a Storm Program, our hotels receive guidance on when and how best to respond when disasters occur. When a disaster occurs, funds from the IHG Shelter Fund can be allocated to enable our hotels to respond quickly and effectively to support our guests, employees and the local community with financial support, vital supplies and accommodation.
