CONNECT for a better, brighter tomorrow. From our hotel, to society, to the environment, we realise that all our actions have reactions. Our CONNECT programme is our commitment to sustainable development in all the neighbourhoods we operate in. Four priorities – governance, environment, community, and colleagues – form and guide the framework of how we minimise our environmental footprint and constructively contribute to communities.
The Langham Shanghai, Xintiandi is committed by ensuring its impact to the environment is minimised by applying aggressive energy saving targets, strict supplier agreements and stern recycling processes to its operation. The hotel measures the results of our commitments with the results of our energy consumption in line with our targets, coupled with the benchmarks set by EarthCheck, Green Hotel Shanghai, and Langham Hospitality Group’s ‘Guests of the Earth’ program. Community initiatives are also plentiful, where the team thrive on supporting local community groups/associations.
The hotel immerses itself in a large portfolio of initiatives that are carefully selected to ensure they are not only aligned with hotel’s commitment to the environment and the local community; with the ultimate go to become a role model amongst hospitality operators in Shanghai for environmental and social impact and awareness.
