Green hotel in Oslo promotes Responsible Business
Taking responsibility for the environment and local community has been an important part 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 program called Responsible Business (RB). Each hotel has a unique RB Action Plan, covering areas such as community outreach, environmental improvement, employee well-being and health and safety. That tradition continues with Responsible Business at this environmentally friendly, or green, Oslo hotel.
The Nordic Radisson Blu hotels have been awarded the Green Key eco-label for 2015. Green Key is a leading international eco-label, currently existing in over 40 countries. The certification is supported by the World Tourism Organization as well as by the UN environment program, UNEP. Our hotels actively work to reduce their impact on the climate and the environment.
The hotels are engaged with both local charity groups and the corporate international charity organization recognised by the Rezidor Hotel Group, the World Childhood Foundation. The mission of the foundation is to defend the rights of the child and to promote better living conditions for vulnerable and exploited children at risk all over the world.
