HOTEL PRACTICES RESPONSIBLE BUSINESS
The Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group is committed to taking responsibility for sustainable development in the environment and local community. In 2001, we strengthened this commitment by joining (RB). Each hotel has a unique RB Action Plan covering areas such as community outreach, cultural heritage, employee and children’s rights, health and safety, and environmental improvements.
Our hotels are engaged with both local charity groups and the international corporate charity organisation supported by the Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group. The foundation’s mission is to defend the rights of the child and promote better living conditions for vulnerable and exploited children all over the world.
