Automatic global offsetting for carbon neutral meetings
As part of our pledge to pursue a greener future at Radisson Hotel Group Americas, we’ve committed to offsetting the carbon cost of every meeting or event held at our 600+ hotels in operation in the Americas and 1200+ in operation globally. Whether you’re hosting a business conference or a personal celebration, we neutralize the environmental cost, at no cost to you.
To do so, we’ve partnered with First Climate, one of the world’s largest carbon offset organizations, and we also contribute to individual projects that reduce emissions and have a positive social impact. Our efforts are aligned with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals and tracked by eco-labels such as Green Key, so you can be sure we’re doing our best to strive for environmental best practice.
How it works
To ensure we accurately offset carbon costs, we first calculate each hotel’s carbon footprint using the Hotel Carbon Measurement Initiative (HCMI). The leading carbon calculator for the hospitality industry, HCMI allows us to pinpoint the carbon emissions for each meeting space. We then offset these with our partners’ help. Our promise to make meetings carbon neutral includes the following pledges:
No planning required

It doesn’t matter if your meeting is large or small, business or personal in nature, we make sure it’s carbon neutral at no additional cost to you or your business.
Meets sustainability requirements
We stay transparent and accountable by aligning with initiatives like the UN Sustainable Development Goals and seeking certification from global auditors like Green Key and EarthCheck.
We’re implementing our carbon neutral meetings initiative for all of our hotel brands at each of our 600+ hotels in operation in the Americas and 1200+ in operation globally.
The impact of carbon offsetting
In summary, we ensure that every meeting and event at our more than 1,450 hotels worldwide is 100% carbon neutral. That’s a program unprecedented in scale for the hospitality industry. The results? Not only do communities receive the economic benefits of the projects we invest in, but we’re also offsetting 38,300 tons of CO₂ each year: the equivalent of taking 8,300 cars off the road. Plan your meetings with Radisson and be a part of making the way we do business more ethical and sustainable.
