Park Plaza Hotels announces participation in global environmental initiative in celebration of growth landmark
The donation to The CarbonNeutral Company - a leading environmental organisation that offers auditable carbon offset programmes and services to reduce travel's impact on the environment - equates to a carbon offset of approximately 60 trips per year by plane for guests staying at Park Plaza Hotels & Resorts or art'otel.
As part of the campaign, Carlson Hotels Worldwide is making a financial donation and has guaranteed 1,000 trees will be planted as part of the United Nations Environment Programme's Plant for the Planet: Billion Tree initiative. The first tree was planted yesterday, 16 December, at the opening of the 1000th hotel, the Radisson St Martin Resort, Marina & Spa on French St Martin in the Caribbean.
"We are proud to support this worthwhile initiative in partnership with CarbonNeutral," said Boris Ivesha, President & CEO of Park Plaza Hotels. "Embracing responsible business is a core principle of our operation and enriches our community," Ivesha added.
Park Plaza Hotels' global expansion developments have contributed to Carlson's significant hotel count, particularly with the impending opening of their largest hotel to date - Park Plaza Westminster Bridge London - in early 2010.
