Hilton has pledged to make business meetings held at its hotels in the UK carbon-neutral at no charge to its customers.
It has partnered with South Pole to offset the carbon footprint of meetings and events held at around 30 of its properties in the UK. All business meetings with 10 or more people will be offset using carbon credits.
Hilton is looking to extend this initiative to 60 hotels across Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
Tanya Clifford, Vice President, Hilton Worldwide Sales, said: “We know our meetings and events customers share our passion for sustainability and like us are committed to finding ways to further reduce their environmental footprint.
“Offering carbon-neutral meetings at no additional cost is a fantastic addition to existing efforts to limit the environmental impact of our operations and achieve our collective ambitions. We look forward to exploring opportunities to extend the programme in the coming months.”
