Responsible Hotel in Marseille

Radisson Blu Hotel, Marseille Vieux Port

RESPONSIBLE BUSINESS


We are proud to be a Responsible Business

Taking responsibility for the environment and local community has been an important part of the broader commitment of the Rezidor Hotel Group to sustainable development for many years. In 2001, this commitment was fortified and placed within the scope of a program called Responsible Business (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.

The hotels are engaged with charity groups and in particular an international charity organization called "Just a drop". The mission of the foundation is to support children of the world by bringing to them sanitized water which will transform their lives.

RB activities and achievements of this hotel include

  • Certified by the Green Key eco-label
  • Energy-saving light bulbs throughout the property
  • Engaged with local events and charity organizations such as project pieces jaunes, opération cartable, un toit pour les abeilles, Octobre Rose and Earth Hour
  • Selective sorting and recycling
September is our Responsible Business action month. During the whole month of September all guests have the possibility to donate one Euro for the association Just a Drop at check-out.
