IHG’s commitment to responsible business is part of their culture, and feel it underpins their entire strategy. It provides the opportunity to protect the environment, create job opportunities, and improve community resilience.
In September 2013, IHG launched their targets for 2013-2017. These targets signal a commitment to doing business responsibly and to creating shared value for IHG, their owners, the environment and the local community.
