HotelREZ sponsored Best Green Charity/Third Sector Campaign Award
HotelREZ sponsord the GREEN AWARD for the Best Charity/Third Sector Campaign in December 2010, furthering their commitment towards the environment and biodiversity.
HotelREZ are a global team of hotel industry professionals, who understand that environmental sustainability is essential for hoteliers to build a successful business. HotelREZ have taken a prerogative in this regard, by associating themselves with the United Nations Billion Tree Campaign, and thus working with member hotels to promote the environmental protection and forest restoration. Under this campaign, world-wide member hotels offer a competitive Billion Tree Campaign Rate, and HotelREZ plants two trees for every two night stay booked at this rate.
“HotelREZ and our member hotels are proud to support the Billion Tree Campaign. It is hoped that the trees planted by HotelREZ customers and all other supporters of the Billion Tree Campaign will help provide breathable air, drinkable water, fertile soils and a stable climate. We are committed to ensuring that we make a difference today, to protect and regenerate our environment for generations to come.” said Mark Lewis, Managing Director HotelREZ
The positive effects of the campaign are already evident through the 7.4 billion trees have already been planted. In 2010 the Billion Tree Campaign aims to make a sustainable contribution to the 2010 International Year of Biodiversity, raising awareness of the importance of biodiversity for our well-being.
