Chase The Extraordinary, InterContinental Hotels Group
To raise employee attention about the environment, IHG organized a mobile tour to all 203 company-owned hotels US, Central and South America engaging over 12,000 employees. A specially outfitted hybrid Ford Escape kicked off the tour at IHG headquarters in Atlanta. At each stop, management talked about how employees can make an impact in their communities and explained the company’s environmental initiatives including a program requiring properties to replace incandescent light bulbs with compact fluorescent lamps. That program alone resulted in the changing of over 200,000 bulbs which will save millions in energy costs and significantly reduce carbon carbon dioxide emissions.
