Hotelbeds has released its annual Environmental, Social and Governance Report, highlighting its progress and initiatives over the past 12 months.
The Spain-based bedbank claims it has achieved carbon neutral status for the fourth consecutive year by reducing emissions as well as offsetting emissions through independent organization Cabon Footprint.
Hotelbeds has also joined Amazon’s Climate Pledge, which is working to encourage global industries to reduce carbon emissions to zero by 2040, ahead of the Paris Agreement’s 2050 target.
Nicholas Huss, CEO at Hotelbeds, says the report demonstrates "how we are determined to make our actions speak louder than our words and to leverage our position to make a difference in this new world of travel.”
The company also says it has “have strongly in mind the protection of human rights, the promotion of diversity & inclusion, the importance of being a responsible partner and employer. In addition, combating worker exploitation where we see it and the prevention of child sexual exploitation – all of these are, I think, crucial for any company that operates on a global footprint.”
Hotelbeds says it has a strong female representation at all levels, with women making up 50% of the executive committee and 57% of the global workforce.
