Supporting local communities

We are committed to active involvement in the local communities around our hotels and corporate offices. Ultimately that means being a valued, responsible community partner by ensuring that our business objectives make a positive difference to the communities in which we operate.

The aim of our charitable endeavours is to support global efforts that represent the business goals of IHG and which make a positive difference to the communities in which we operate. The activities we support must be aligned with our corporate values, 'Winning Ways', and our Code of Conduct.

In 2013 we set a new target to contribute a total of $10 million to communities through monetary donations and in-kind support, including funds deployed through the IHG Shelter in a Storm Programme from 2013-2017. This will come from cash donations made by IHG offices, employees and IHG Rewards Club members as well as donations in-kind made by IHG and its hotels. We also want to continue increasing employee engagement of the IHG Shelter in a Storm Programme and get more colleagues involved in fundraising events for the IHG Shelter Fund.

As part of our Community Strategy, we work to ensure our donations have the biggest possible impact. To that end we have a set of criteria that helps us target our donations effectively and align them with our corporate objectives. We encourage our local managers and employees to use them as a common sense guide in deciding what is right for their community.

We support charities which:

  • operate or have needs in one of our areas of focus; environmental sustainability, creating local economic opportunity or providing disaster relief
  • are open to innovative approaches to tackling the above needs
  • are operationally efficient and can demonstrate their ability to follow through on a proposal
  • explain clearly the benefits to IHG and our hotel communities.

We only support organisations which have verifiable charity status and whose ethical principles are consistent with our Code of Ethics. We do not support political or religious organisations, nor in general do we support individuals or provide operating support for hospitals and healthcare institutions. We will not support organisations that discriminate on the basis of race, religion, creed, gender, age, physical challenge or national origin.
