As part of the Carlson Hotels and the Rezidor Hotel Group family of brands, Park Inn by Radisson® has a strong track record of taking its people, communities and the environment into account in its business decisions.
We believe that by managing our business in a responsible manner we build trust, build relationships, and achieve great hospitality! And when we operate in a way that is respectful of human rights, socially equitable and environmentally sustainable, we can better meet our social and economic responsibilities.
The award-winning Responsible Business programme was developed in 2001 to fortify Carlson Hotels’ and the Rezidor Hotel Group’s commitment to social, ethical and environmental responsibility; and we are dedicated to three key focus areas. First, taking responsibility for the diversity, inclusion; and health and safety of employees and guests. Second, showing leadership in social and ethical issues within the company, as well as in the community. Third, reducing our negative impact on the environment.
All Park Inn employees receive Responsible Business training and each Park Inn hotel has a unique Responsible Business Action Plan covering areas such as health and well-being of guests and employees; resource efficiency relating to energy, water and waste; community outreach and charity. Our hotels are engaged with both local charity groups and our corporate international charity organisation, the World Childhood Foundation.
Carlson Hotels and Rezidor were among the first hotel groups to sign the United Nations Global Compact and in early 2010 Rezidor was named as one of the “World’s Most Ethical Companies” by the Ethisphere Institute, while Carlson was recognized at the Ethical Corporation's Responsible Business Awards 2010 event. Together with the UN Tourism Child Protection Code of Conduct, Carlson won the Best Collaboration award for work on protecting children’s rights from exploitation in travel and tourism. Park Inn’s efforts in the area of corporate social responsibility have been externally verified, with many hotels having achieved third-party eco-certifications.
