Carbon neutral meetings

We ensure all your events with Radisson Hotel Group Americas are carbon neutral.

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.

Radisson Meetings - Carbon Neutral Intro

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:

Europe, Middle East and Africa

To offset 50% of hotels’ carbon footprint in this region, we invest in wind farms that generate sustainable energy. For the other 50%, we invest in clean cookstoves in Kenya, which contribute to healthier indoor air quality and the fight against deforestation.

The Americas

For the Americas, we account for half of your meeting’s carbon footprint with investments in wind farms that generate sustainable energy. Planting Brazil nuts in Peru covers the remaining 50%.

Asia Pacific

The carbon offsetting program for our Asia Pacific hotels invests in rural biogas installations in India. These result in healthier indoor air quality and a lowered rate of deforestation.

The impact of carbon offsetting

Radisson Meetings - Carbon Neutral Impact CO2

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.
