Corporate Social Responsibility
Belmond is deeply respectful of its communities and their surroundings
We aim to tread lightly and indeed make a positive contribution to the many destinations where we operate. We are also strongly aware of our responsibility towards natural resources and the environment, especially at locations close to World Heritage Sites.
All our hotels, trains and river cruises run initiatives to support the places and people that surround them. As part of our “Think Global, Act Local” approach we:
- Purchase as much food as possible from sustainable sources
- Run and support educational programmes
- Follow sustainable practices to reduce the impact of our operations on the environment and to ensure energy efficiency
Among our many initiatives, the food and beverage operations of the majority of Belmond’s hotels, trains and river cruises are assessed by the UK-based Sustainable Restaurant Association. Belmond is the first global luxury hospitality brand to have undertaken this ongoing third party testing.
