Responsible Business

Supporting our purpose to provide True Hospitality for everyone, at IHG we want to ensure we have a positive impact on the lives of all people that interact with us. True Hospitality means making everyone feel welcome and cared for, recognised and respected, whoever and wherever they are in the world. We bring this commitment to life by embedding responsible business practices in all aspects of the way we work.

We recognise the importance and benefits of ensuring our people fully represent the communities in which we operate, and the guests who stay in our hotels. Our high-performance culture is driven by creating an engaging and inclusive environment where different perspectives and ideas are welcomed.

We believe in diversity and inclusion across all aspects of our business. This includes hotel ownership, strategic sourcing relationships, recruitment, community relations, franchising and marketing. Achieving diversity and inclusion involves creating the right working environments and business relationships, and encouraging a culture where everyone feels valued and accepted.

Alongside our responsibilities as a company and employer, and to our guests, we care passionately about the environment and improving and supporting communities around the world. Our IHG Green Engage system helps our hotels reduce their environmental impact, while our IHG Academy provides opportunities for local people to start and grow their careers in the hospitality industry.
