Think Blu, Act Green We’re changing the impact we have on our environment Every year, The Rezidor Hotel Group hosts more than 11 million guests in all its hotels across the globe. Our ambition is to be a good company to work for, stay with and invest in which means we take our commitment to being a responsible business seriously. The Rezidor Hotel Group has had an award winning Responsible Business programme in place across all its hotels since 2001. In the past three years alone, we’ve made major changes throughout our hotels to support this effort: • Awarded Gold at the Green Hospitality Awards, receiving this for our actions towards reducing water waste, energy consumption and working with the local community • Our rubbish collected, our planet protected – all our paint cans, aerosols and batteries are now recycled • We’ve installed movement sensors in all staff areas to ensure unused lights are turned off automatically, we’re now starting the big task of doing this in the public sections of the hotels • At Park Inn Heathrow, we undertook a 14 month, energy saving project. Changing 12,000 standard light bulbs to improved energy efficient bulbs. The new bulbs will provide approximately two years of continuous lighting versus only three months from the previous bulbs – this has also reduced our CO2 emissions by 500,000 kilograms Due to efforts such as these, we were voted one of the World’s Most Ethical Companies for the second consecutive year in 2011 and we will continue to ensure all our hotels strive to take economic, social, ethical and environmental issues into consideration when making decisions in their everyday work.
