NH Hotels makes sustainability pledge

NH Hotel Group has pledged to reduce carbon emissions all along its value chain by 20% by 2030.

The move will prevent the emission of over 70,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.

The target, part of the group's new business plan, has been validated by the Science-Based Targets initiative - an alliance mobilising the world of business to take action against climate change.

"The fact that we have set a science-based target is going to help us advance towards a business model that is compatible with a low-carbon economy and allow us to take advantage of all of the attendant opportunities," said Rufino Perez, NH chief operations officer & global transformation leader.

"Attainment of this milestone will imply accelerated and large-scale transformation in which we will involve all of our stakeholders. Our entire organisation is totally committed to meeting this target.

"We have been actively supporting climate change mitigation since 2007, since when we have managed to reduce our operations' carbon footprint by 67%. Moreover, in the last year, 70% of all of the energy we consumed came from renewable sources. However, now is the time to be even more ambitious with our sustainability targets."
