Taking responsibility for the environment and local community has been an important part of the broader commitment of the Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group to sustainable development for many years. In 2001, this commitment was fortified and placed within the scope of a programme called Responsible Business (RB). Each hotel has a unique RB Action Plan covering such areas such as community outreach, environmental improvement, and employee well-being, health, and safety. That commitment continues at this green hotel in Norway.
The hotels are also engaged with both local charity groups and the corporate international charity organisation supported by the Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group, the World Childhood Foundation. The mission of WCF is to defend the rights of children and to promote better living conditions for vulnerable and exploited children at risk all over the world.
