IHG Launches Version 2.0 of Green Engage, the Online Tool Helping Hotels
Monitor, Reduce and Manage their Energy Use

18 April 2011 - Learning as we go, version two of our pioneering online sustainability tool Green Engage is ready for hotels around the world.  Green Engage helps hotels monitor, reduce and manage their energy use along with water use and waste.  Hotels can both bring down their energy bills and reduce their carbon footprint with the tool.  Version two’s new features make it easier to use including a 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  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.
