Radisson Meetings - Carbon Neutral Intro

Our promise

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 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. Since the launch, Radisson Meetings have offset 30,300 tons of CO₂: the equivalent of taking 6,500 cars off the road.

Radisson Hotel Group is committed to reducing our carbon and water footprint by 30% by 2025, aligning with science-based emissions reduction targets, removing single use plastics, and continuing to drive best practices in water stewardship and responsible consumption behaviours. In 2020, 447 hotels, including 79% of all hotels across Europe, the Middle East, and Africa were awarded with an ecolabel.
