At Corus Hotels we believe that the local economic and social impact of our brands can be managed positively and responsibly and one of our key objectives is to build a sustainable business for the long term. We understand this cannot be achieved unless we are committed to acting in a socially responsible manner in respect of our guests, team members, local communities, and the environment in which we operate.
Corus Hotels are passionate about delivering a well-developed and defined approach to our corporate social responsibility (CSR) and recognise that in a changing world we must continue to adapt.
Our core values are pivotal to how we behave and shape the actions we take to improve our operations and performance. At the same time, this activity must align with our understanding of the role we play in our local communities and we must seek to minimise any negative impacts from our actions.
