Carlson Rezidor aims to be a trusted industry leader for Responsible Business in our interactions with all of our stakeholders, including owners, developers, partners, guests, employees and the local communities in which we operate. Carlson Rezidor’s Responsible Business (RB) Program is built on principles of sustainable development and the triple bottom-line. All participating hotels strive to take economic, social, ethical and environmental issues into consideration when making decisions in their everyday work.

Having received the Green Key eco-label our hotel continues to play an active role in protecting the planet's environment.
Green Key eco-label
The hotel and its staff have implemented and continue to practice an effective environmental policy that includes guidelines for staff training as well as for the conservation of water and energy and the disposal of wastes and chemical products. Applied through employee empowerment, the policy also seeks to build supplier and customer awareness about environmental preservation. In addition to closely monitoring energy consumption, the hotel has installed waste-sorting and water-saving equipment. Staff also use environmentally friendly cleaning products. The hotel is committed to respecting nature and to contributing to environmental education.
When guests choose a hotel awarded the Green Key eco-label, they are guaranteed a stay in a respected and preserved environment where they, too, are encouraged to participate in the green practices.
