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.

Our Pledge

The Langham Huntington, Pasadena's commitment to sustainability has been recognized by EarthCheck, the world’s leading sustainable travel and tourism certification organization, for more than five consecutive years, measuring key indicators such as energy and water consumption, total waste production and community commitment. 

Only companies that demonstrate practices that adhere to the highest standards receive the coveted Gold Certification. We successfully benchmark our operations annually by submitting operational data and having it compared to that of other similar organizations.  By taking a holistic view of company practices, we are able to consistently identify where we are out-performing and where room for continual improvement remains.
