Radisson Responsible Business Practices

Hotels play an important role in the travel and tourism industry, which contributes to the economic development of local communities around the world. We have a responsibility to the people and the physical environment of those communities—a responsibility to see that the community is not hurt by our presence, but rather, enhanced by it, both economical and socially. We achieve this goal by going about our business in a responsible manner. Radisson Hotels & Resorts Responsible Business is centered on three important areas:
  1. Taking responsibility for diversity, inclusion and the health, safety and security of our employees and guest
  2. Showing leadership in social and ethical responsibility issues within the company as well as in the community
  3. Reducing our negative impact on the environment

Radisson has a rich history of Responsible Business practices, offering a strong foundation as we continue to build on that history. Ultimately, we strive to serve the common good through our commitment to social responsibility.

World Childhood Foundation
Radisson Hotels is proud to support the WORLD CHILDHOOD FOUNDATION, which is committed to defending the rights of the child and securing better living conditions for children and young women at risk all over the world.

Radisson has signed and is committed to upholding The Code of Conduct to Protect Children Against Sexual Exploitation in Travel and Tourism, "The Code." Through this international set of guidelines supported by ECPAT, travel and tourism companies have pledged to help end commercial sex trade of children.

Carlson was one of the first global hospitality companies to sign the United Nations Global Compact, the largest corporate responsibility initiative in the world.
