CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY
Belmond Copacabana Palace runs several long-term sustainability and community programs, which have been increased and developed over recent years. The hotel now recycles more than 50% of its waste, uses 100% renewable energy and works with sustainable food and flower suppliers.
The hotel also supports local children’s philanthropic organization, Solar Meninos de Luz, with a program of year-round activities. These range from staff volunteering days to major fund-raising dinners and events. It recently invited 200 disadvantaged children to enjoy a fun tour of the hotel, during which they made drawings which the hotel purchased as delightful gifts for VIP guests.
