Think Planet!
In January 2012, Rezidor launched Think Planet, an ambitious energy saving initiative which aims to reduce energy consumption by 25% by 2016. Building on its environmental successes of the past years, Rezidor hotels will continuously reduce their resource consumption by focusing on operations and investments. In parallel, challenging environmental targets will be set for major renovations and new builds. The target of 25% will ensure Rezidor exceeds current environmental standards by utilising the latest available low energy technologies.
