Radisson Blu Resort, Trysil

Responsible Business

Hotel practices Responsible Business

Taking responsibility for the environment and local community has been an important part of the Radisson Hotel Group broader commitment 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.

Our hotels are engaged with both local charity groups and the Radisson Hotel Group corporate international charity organization, like the SOS Children’s Villages. SOS Children's Villages International comprises 118 national SOS Children's Villages associations. As members of the federation, each SOS Children's Villages association is committed to applying the federation's statutes, standards for quality child care, and stringent financial and administrative practices. Their strategy is to ensure the best care of children, innovate, and unite more partners so that no child grows up alone.

Responsible Business activities include:

  • Efforts toward receiving the Miljøfyrtårn certification
  • Energy-saving practices throughout the hotel
  • Exact waste separation (glass, paper, plastic, residual waste)
  • Implementation of the RB philosophy with new staff

The introduction of an environmental management system brings considerable cost benefits to the hotel alongside positive ecological effects. As a result, the resort will achieve significant water and energy savings.
