The Radisson Hotel join hands with UN's Sustainable Development Goals
To help guests stay more eco-friendly and reduce carbon footprint
Radisson Hotel Group is to make all meetings and events across 400+ hotels in its EMEA portfolio carbon negative and it will offset double the carbon footprint of each event held at one of its participating hotels, ensuring every meeting has a positive environmental impact. Carbon Negative Planet Positive is the initiative from the Hoteliers' Group, which aims to reduce the Group's carbon footprint by 30 per cent. Since 2015, the Group has offset over 30,300 tonnes of CO2 at no cost to its clients, the equivalent of removing over 6,500 fuel-powered cars from the road.
Carbon Negative for meetings scheduled between October 18, 2021 and January 31, 2022 and taking place before March 31, 2022. The programme enables clients to host meetings in a sustainable manner by offsetting double the CO2 emissions from meetings and events at no cost to the client, making meetings held at participating hotels carbon negative during this time period.
“The upcoming COP26 conference will see world leaders come together to discuss climate change which needs all our attention. At Radisson Hotel Group, we are constantly reviewing how we as a global business can influence positive climate action, and how we can encourage the hospitality industry to push the boundaries on green meetings and events. We are proud to be pioneering this initiative and trust that meeting organizers around the globe recognize the positive impact they can have on the environment as face-to-face meetings increase,” said Eric de Neef, Executive Vice President, Global Chief Branding & Commercial Officer.
