Radisson Hotel Group becomes world’s first hotel group to offer carbon negative meetings

Radisson Hotel Group is proud to be the world’s first hotel group to make all meetings and events across 400+ hotels in its EMEA portfolio carbon negative. For every event taking place at its participating hotels, Radisson Hotel Group will offset double the carbon footprint, to ensure that every meeting has a positive impact on the environment.

 

The program allows clients to host meetings in a sustainable way by offsetting double the CO2 emissions from meetings and events free of charge to the client, making meetings that take place during this period at participating hotels carbon negative.

The  carbon footprint is calculated based on the leading hospitality industry tool, the Hotel Carbon Measurement Initiative (HCMI). For each meeting, the carbon footprint is calculated and then offset through projects that combat climate change and contribute to sustainable development. The projects supported in Europe, Middle East and Africa Include:

  • Wind farms (50% of footprint) —generating sustainable energy with wind turbines.
  • Clean cook-stoves in Kenya (50% of footprint) —providing healthier indoor air and fighting deforestation.

 

Radisson Hotel Group works with First Climate, one of the largest carbon offsetting organizations worldwide, to assist with corporations’ goals to minimize their carbon footprint. All carbon offsetting projects are VCS or Gold Standard and are aligned with the UN Sustainable Development Goals

 

Carbon Negative. Planet Positive. will be available from October 18, 2021 to January 31, 2022, for meetings and events taking place between October 18, 2021, and March 31, 2022.
