We are committed to active involvement in the local communities around our hotels and corporate offices. That means being a valued, responsible community partner by ensuring that our business objectives enhance the quality of life in the community.
The aim of our community investment 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.
Contributions are only made to organisations with verifiable charity status and whose ethical principles are consistent with our Code of Conduct and who align to one of our three focus areas.
We do not support organisations that discriminate on the basis of race, religion, creed, gender, age, physical challenge or national origin. In addition, we will not generally provide contributions to:
general operating support for hospitals and health care institutions
conferences, workshops or seminars not directly related to our business interests
multi-year grants; only the first year of multi-year requests will be assured, with support in subsequent years dependent upon annual evaluation
political donations of any kind.
