reduce and manage their energy use along with water use and
can both bring down their energy bills and reduce their carbon

data-entry wizard and more report options.
With over 4,400 hotels in 100 countries and territories, sustainability is central to the way we do business. The 2010 Corporate Responsibility Report from IHG is now available. You’ll find it using this direct link www.ihg.com/cr. The report explains how we put our sustainability thinking into practice during the last year and our priorities in 2011.
We approach CR by innovating and collaborating. These activities are focused on the areas that make the best sense for our business and where we believe we can make the most difference. We've developed groundbreaking technologies and concepts, like Green Engage. And we join forces with some of the best organisations around, such as Oxford and Harvard Universities, Business in the Community and LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) to help find creative solutions to the challenges we face.
