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.
Langham Place, Guangzhou has established strong bonds with our beloved city, Guangzhou, and its people. We have a deep commitment to our community and we demonstrate this in many ways throughout the year for sustained improvement. We extend the unprecedented innovation to Earth, the community, the colleagues, and the governance.
Annually, Langham Place, Guangzhou takes part in hundreds of hours of community service and sustainability programs to connect with the local community. We partner with the Guangzhou English Training Centre for the Handicapped (GETCH), in order to support talented youths with disabilities to boost their self-confidence. Our employees also collaborate with the YMCA to increase awareness for children and elders with disabilities. Loving Earth Month is another event that our hotel participates in, to be socially responsible for the negative impacts that a hotel can have on the environment. We also have “Guests of the Earth” Programme offers a bed linen and towel reuse option for guests.
