More than 56 properties will run on 100% renewable electricity
Radisson Hotel Group is making a commitment to sustainability by setting ambitious emission reduction targets to be net zero by 2050, in line with the SBTi net-zero standard.
Radisson’s recently released 2021 Responsible Business Report outlines its latest targets and its strategic five-year plan.
In 2021, the Group reduced its carbon footprint by 23% per square metre and reduced 13% of its water footprint per square metre compared with 2019.
Commenting on the announcement, Radisson Hotel Group global senior vice president of Sustainability, Security and Corporate Communications, Inge Huijbrechts said: “While net zero by 2050 seems far away, we need to take action immediately. Our world needs Responsible Businesses now more than ever, and we need to accelerate global climate action by 2030 in order to ensure a liveable future for both our people and our planet.
“Much needed progress can be made by taking everyone in the hospitality value chain on the sustainability journey by setting increasingly ambitious sustainability goals.
“We are proud to be playing a leadership role in the development of the Hotel Sustainability Basics, which will launch later this year to establish a common industry framework to grow sustainable travel. Together with our new Build Planet guidelines to develop sustainable hotel asset portfolios, these are essential step-changes that need to be made on the route to net zero.”
