The Rezidor Hotel Group is one of the fastest growing hotel companies in the world.
Rezidor’s business is managing a portfolio of great hotels in four brands: Radisson Blu, Park Inn by Radisson, Hotel Missoni and Regent.
In total Rezidor manages over 338 hotels in 70 countries in Europe, CIS, the Middle East and Africa. Currently the group has about 100 hotels in the pipeline which corresponds to about 22,000 rooms.
Rezidor prides itself to be non-conformist and actively participates in driving change in the hospitality industry, amongst others in Responsible Business where the group is always trying to drive innovation.
Since the beginning of 2008 Rezidor committed to achieving eco-labels across Europe, the Middle East and Africa. Very soon in this journey, we recognized the need to work with a solid international eco-label for countries without a predominant national label.
Green Key is a highly recommendable eco-label because it is truly international and specific to the hospitality industry.
Since 2009 Rezidor is the international hotel chain partner of Green Key. Since then thanks to our successful cooperation Green Key has been introduced in France, the Middle-East, Turkey and Germany.
Currently over 125 Rezidor hotels have the Green Key ecolabel, with many more to follow. As a group Rezidor currently has 65% of its hotels ecolabeled, with a target to achieve 100% by 2015.
