Corporate Social Responsibility
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.
With our commitment to environmental and social sustainability, The Langham, Hong Kong hotel has achieved Platinum Certification from EarthCheck in 2020. This certification highly recognises our efforts towards a better tomorrow through third party audits and benchmarking amongst hotels in the global travel and tourism industry.
