The FINANCIAL -- Rezidor, one of the most dynamic hotel companies worldwide and a member of the
Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group, continues to go green: All across Europe, the Middle East and Africa, Rezidor now counts more than 220 eco-labelled hotels – and is on track to become the first international hotel group to have all its properties eco-labelled by the year 2015, according to The Rezidor Hotel Group.


“We are proud that 2/3 of our entire portfolio in operation is eco-labelled. Rezidor is a responsible organisation – we care for our planet and act in a sustainable way”, said Wolfgang M. Neumann, President & CEO of Rezidor. The group features an industry-leading and award-winning Responsible Business Programme built on three pillars: Think Planet or minimizing the environmental footprint; Think People or caring about the health and safety of guests and employees; and Think Together or taking responsibility for business ethics and the local communities. Every year since 2010, Rezidor has been named one of the world’s most ethical companies by the US think tank “Ethisphere”," Neumann added.

Rezidor works exclusively with internationally recognized eco-labels that are validated by an external audit. Key eco-labelling partners are Green Key (in 2009, Rezidor became the first international hotel group to partner with Green Key), Nordic Swan (Nordics), Green Tourism Business Scheme (UK) and Green Hospitality Award (Ireland), according to The Rezidor Hotel Group.


In order to attain an eco-label hotels have to comply with strict environmental requirements and actions criteria in energy and water savings, waste management, environmental management, use of fair trade and organic products. The Radisson Blu Hotel Madrid Prado for example has invested 15,000 EUR in LED lighting, various insulation measures, waste management and a move to eco-labelled cleaning products before achieving the Green Key.
