Hotel taking responsibility
Feel good at the Radisson Blu Hotel Uppsala knowing that we are a hotel that takes responsibility. Since we opened in 2012 we have been part of Rezidor's Responsible Business program, which involves taking economic, social, ethical and environmental issues into consideration when making decisions in our everyday work.
Find out below the Radisson Blu Hotel Uppsala’s actions in the three pillars of our Responsible Business program:
- Think Planet: reduce our negative impact on the environment.
- Think People: taking responsibility for the health and safety of employees and customers.
- Think Together: respect for social and ethical issues within the company and in the community.
THINK THE PLANETGreen Key
As a Green Key-labeled hotel, we have implemented and continue to pursue an effective environmental policy that includes guidelines for staff training and for the conservation of water, energy, waste disposal and chemical products. When you choose us, you are guaranteed a stay in a respected and preserved environment where you are also encouraged to participate in green methods without compromising on your experience with us.
We are a certified GreenBuilding. This means that we have 25% lower energy consumption than Boverket's recommendation. The house is driven by a high degree of compassion and, among other things, a temperature reduction in unoccupied rooms occurs through a connection between the our control system and reservation system.
Blu Planet Meetings
We calculate the carbon footprint for each meeting and event and offset through Gold Standard carbon offsetting projects in Malawi, linked to water sustainability.
We think it is important to have good health. Therefore, we offer our guests #BluRoutes – local routes, perfect for a jogging or walk, starting and ending at the hotel. We also offer free yoga every Wednesday morning. Read more under "Fitness & Health".
For the safety of our guests and our personnel, we teach our staff about CPR, first aid and fire safety, once every year.
THINK COMMUNITYCentrally we work with Just a Drop and Youth Career Initiative. In addition, we work with many different local organizations such as Hand in Hand, Håll Sverige Rent, Haberga Bigård and Cancerfonden. In addition, we sponsor many local events every year.
