Local Initiatives

The correct implementation of social and environmental actions by the tourism sector in general and the hotelier in particular, is essential to add value to our society. At RIU Hotels & Resorts we work on projects related to childhood, the local community and biodiversity in most of the tourist destinations where we operate and we continually seek synergies with local organizations to generate benefits in their communities. On the other hand, we closely work in joint actions with local, national and international non-government organizations and with the help of our team at the destination, we give continuity to their support to emergencies related with health and poverty, among other social problems.
