Carlson Rezidor have been members of ITP since 2005 with particular involvement in the Youth Career Initiative and the Hotel Carbon Measurement Initiative.
I appreciate the work that they (ITP) do in getting people around a table to discuss sustainability openly, whilst also coming up with practical solutions – for example the Hotel Carbon Measurement Initiative (HCMI) and Youth Career Initiative (YCI). This is unique, unlike in other industries, here you see genuine exchange and a platform for sharing information.

Carlson Rezidor and Responsible Business
Carlson Rezidor aim to be a truly responsible business in practice as well as in theory. The three pillars of Carlson Rezidor’s responsible business practice are people, community and environment – they aim to be a good company to work for, stay at and partner with.
Carlson Rezidor has been particularly involved in ITP’s Youth Career Initiative and human trafficking work. In 2013 and 2014, the Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group financially supported the development of the new YCI implementation model, which was successfully piloted at the Radisson Blu Hotel Dakar. Further to this, in 2014 the Carlson Family Foundation donated a $100,000 grant to ITP and YCI for the expansion of YCI in Africa, Asia Pacific and the Americas. Carlson Reizdor was also one of original members of the Hotel Carbon Measurement Initiative working group in 2011 and has been fundamental in its successful role out.
