RIU HOTELS & RESORTS: TOWARDS A MORE RESPONSIBLE HOSPITALITY MODEL
The Corporate Social Responsibility team has a long-term action plan that focuses its social innovation on the “RIU Method”, a work methodology based on three main scopes: children, local community and biodiversity.
THE RIU METHOD
Children, local community and biodiversity are the three lines of action of RIU’s CSR
Our method of social innovation, unique in the sector, includes reports, internal interviews, meetings with stakeholders and field visits. An intense research work that identifies social and environmental deficiencies in the communities nearby the hotels and guides our social investment where it is most needed.
A RESPONSIBLE IDENTITY
HOTELS WITH a SUSTAINABLE conscience
Committed to the environment
RIU is aware of the impact that its activity has on the environment where its hotels are located and that is why it works to minimize it through projects aimed at ensuring efficiency, saving in energy and water consumption, protecting biodiversity and avoiding contamination.
