Automatic and global carbon offsetting
Radisson Hotel Group automatically offsets the carbon footprint of every single meeting and event taking place at any of our more than 1,100 hotels worldwide, at no cost to you. In partnership with First Climate, one of the world’s largest carbon offset organizations, and through projects that help reduce emissions and have a positive social impact, Radisson Meetings strives for environmental best practice.
For more information on our program, watch our video about how we turn emissions into impact.
A hotel’s carbon footprint is calculated based on the leading hospitality industry tool, the Hotel Carbon Measurement Initiative (HCMI). Developed to measure and analyze the carbon footprint of hotel stays and meetings in a consistent and transparent way, the HCMI framework enables us to calculate the carbon emissions allocated to a meeting space to offset them accordingly.

The impact of carbon offsetting
This is a world premiere at this scale: any meeting or event held at any of the Radisson Hotel Group’s 1,100 hotels worldwide is now 100% carbon neutral.
For each meeting, the carbon footprint is calculated and then offset through projects that combat climate change and contribute to sustainable development, such as wind farms in Turkey and biogas plant installations in India. Per year, Radisson Meetings will offset 38,300 tons of CO₂: the equivalent of taking 8,300 cars off the road every year.
By 2022, Radisson Hotel Group plans to reduce its water consumption and carbon footprint by 10% and is committed to the International Tourism Partnership 2030 hotel industry goals. In 2018, 80% of all RHG hotels across Europe, the Middle East, and Africa were eco-labeled with the Green Key, and for nine years, the group has been named one of the world’s Most Ethical Companies by the Ethisphere Institute.
