At RHC, we believe that our success is not only measured by guest satisfaction but also by our impact on the environment, our social responsibility, and our commitment to diversity and inclusion. As such, we have implemented a comprehensive environmental, social, and diversity program that guides our business practices and decisions. Our program focuses on empowering employees with training, tools and resources to work collectively in reducing our carbon footprint and enabling us to become a market leader in hospitality.
While we have our ESG strategy targets for 2023, we recognise that operating sustainably is an on-going business commitment. We are working with specialist consultants, Rawstone Consulting, to develop our global ESG vision for the future and our next set of targets.
Our pillars of ESG strategy
Waste no food
At RHC, our objective is to minimise food waste and embrace a sustainable mindset. In the UK, we are actively collaborating with esteemed charities like The Felix Project and WasteKnot, dedicated to curbing food waste. Simultaneously, our New York team partners with Rethink Food, a non-profit organisation with the shared mission of diminishing food waste.
At RHC, we champion apprenticeship schemes and commit to employing apprentices throughout the business to give individual talent the best possible opportunity to nurture their talent and potential.
We partner with 3rd parties to foster a workplace which promotes the inclusion of minority groups including gender, ethnicity and LGBTQ.
RHC have made a commitment to all staff that by the end of 2023 they can take one fully paid voluntary day a year. During this day they can work with a charity of their choice.
We plan to increase the number of people employed from disadvantaged backgrounds by 10% by the end of 2023.
