Radisson Hotels to reduce single-use plastics globallyBy ATTA®
The Radisson Hotel Group is set to launch a global roll-out plan of plastic reduction - including the introduction of bulk amenities in all hotels across the group's portfolio by 2022. The group will implement bulk amenity dispensers across all brands by the beginning of 2022, replacing small bottles for common bathroom products. This action will remove 57 million miniature amenities from circulation, avoiding the use of almost 500 tons of plastic annually.
In addition, the group has a global commitment to #refusethestraw, ensuring plastic straws and plastic stirrers are no longer used in its hotels by 2021 and eco-friendly alternatives will be offered to guests upon request.
Federico J. GonzálezTejera, President and CEO, Radisson Hospitality AB and Chairman, Global Steering Committee, Radisson Hotel Group, said: "Plastic pollution is one of the current major global issues and our Group is proud to play a leading role in driving plastic reduction across the travel and tourism industry. We are a signatory to the International Tourism Plastic Pledge – further demonstrating our commitment to sustainability and Responsible Business, in line with the targets laid out in our five-year strategic plan. Responsible Business is a key element in our approach to growth and is vital to our ambition to become one of the leading hotel companies in the world."
