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.
IHG's Online Sustainability Management System
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 fulfil our important commitment to doing business responsibly and, in turn, this stops hotels losing money on energy costs.
