Responsible Business at the Park Inn by Radisson Astrakhan
Taking responsibility for the environment and local community has been an important part of the broader commitment 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 programme called Responsible Business (RB).
In December 2014, Park Inn by Radisson Astrakhan received the 'Green Key' eco label.
An eco label is a voluntary tool that is intended to stimulate operators to carry on their business in a sustainable and efficient way. An eco label also guarantees the customer a predefined basic standard. The certificate was awarded by the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE), a non-government, non-profit organisation promoting sustainable development through environmental education.
Green Key means an establishment has fulfilled a list of requirements. Park Inn by Radisson Astrakhan fulfills 57 imperative criteria and 29 guideline criteria, which is a very high score among the hotels all over Russia.
The Park Inn by Radisson Astrakhan practises Responsible Business in the following 3 areas:
Launched in 2012, Think Planet is an ambitious energy project aimed at reducing energy consumption by 25% in 5 years. The hotel plans to achieve this target by replacing light bulbs with energy-saving LED technology and by encouraging staff and guests to participate in turning off the lights and equipment when not using them.
RB actions and awards:
'Think Together' summer, in which we donated linens and towels to the local assisted living facility for lonely elderly people and also to the refugees from East Ukraine, has given way to 'Think Together' autumn.
For the second year running, our hotel participates in the regional charity campaign 'First year at school'. This year we started the RBAM by donating 20 new complete school sets to children from underprivileged families.
We are convinced through thinking and acting together, each of us can make a contribution to the community in which we live.
