We want to be responsible actors and good neighbors. With almost 200 hotels and more than 13,000 employees, we have the opportunity to influence the conditions around us. It is part of the culture at Nordic Choice Hotels.
Everybody can do something. Nordic Choice Hotels is the leader in the local social responsibility sphere.
In 2016, Nordic Choice Hotels launched an internal WeCare fund, where the hotels can seek support for local projects. You can read more about some of the winners below. Over the years, several hotels have received funding from the Fund for various activities and projects that contribute in one way or another to local communities. Nobody can do everything, but everyone can do something, and for us it is a part of our culture to act as responsible actors.
With so many committed employees and hotels, we have the opportunity to influence the conditions around us. This creates value for the local community, but also pride and even greater participation and interest among employees, as well as hotel guests. Nordic Choice Hotels has organized several activities and partnerships over the years; below you can see examples of local activities we work with.
Quality Hotel Klubben in Norwegian Tönsberg started a bumblebee hotel in Ilende Nature Reserve in 2016 in collaboration with Tönsberg Näringsliv, as a measure to stop the decreasing number of bumble bees and bees in the world. Wild bees need to find places in nature where they can build their nests, but the changing agricultural landscape has meant that settlements are disappearing. Bumblebee hotels help bees on the margins so that they can continue their important involvement in nature's cycle.
Quality Hotel 33 in Oslo becomes the first hotel with hives on the roof. With six beehives, the hotel will be able to produce 120 kilograms of honey per year, and the bees are contributing to increased pollination in the area and thus a sustainable ecosystem. The bees will get a Instagram account and Snapchat, where they share the weekly Bzzz.
Together with the foundation "Lifestyle for the elderly", Quality Airport Hotel Stavanger offers accommodation every year in the town's nursing home to a party where the elderly get to be at the center for one night. At the party, 150 residents, accompanied by companions, come and hang out, enjoy music, good food and nice company. The hotel provides the venue, the music and the food.
In Malmö at Clarion Hotel & Congress Malmö Live you participate in an event called "Cycling without age". Every summer, older people get the chance to do fun things. The hotel takes them out on Christiania bike rides, shows them the city or takes them to an outdoor concert organized annually by the city of Malmo. Of course, the hotel also has a coffee break.
Comfort Hotel Norrköping has a close collaboration with the women's shelter in Norrköping. The hotel hosts Christmas parties for those connected to the organization every year and have them provide activities such as lectures in the hotel's facilities. The hotel works as an extra line of support for the women's shelter and if their accomodation is full, they can reach out to the hotel director, who will book rooms free of charge for women who need it. The hotel has collected Christmas gifts for the women's shelter during our yearly activity Lonely Christmas Tree looking for presents.
In December every year all of our hotels conduct a fundraiser called Lonely Christmas Tree looking for presents. The purpose is to spread the Christmas Spirit and give vulnerable children a better Christmas.
All hotels within Nordic Choice Hotels collaborate with local organizations which they choose themselves. All Christmas presents that are put under the tree in the hotels go directly to selected organizations. Additionally, for each Christmas gift that is put under the tree, Nordic Choice Hotels donates 10 SEK to the UNICEF project Sweet Dreams, which fights trafficking.
In December 2017, more Christmas gifts were received than ever before! With an increase of 22% from the previous year, all of our hotels combined received a total of 63,800 Christmas gift and 3,062 gift cards.
While the hotels received a record amount of Christmas gifts, Nordic Choice Hotels also donated 10 SEK per present. This means that 638,800 SEK was donated to UNICEF and the Sweet Dreams project in 2017.
All of our hotels performed fantastic in 2017's Lonely Christmas Tree looking for presents, but one hotel did a little extra. Here they set a new record in the amount of gifts received and it was special moment that left an impression on the hotel director.
The hotel chain Clarion Collection Hotel has collected money, gifts and clothes for families in need in the Baltics for many years. Clarion Collection has helped families in partnership with the organization Hope for Children, which is an organization that helps families in crisis. The hotel has, among other things, donated revenue from parking and breakfast, arranged swap meets and Christmas bake sales. After renovations the hotel has also sold inventory with the money going to families in Riga. The project was started after an initiative from employees who are originally from the Baltics.
All hotels in Gothenburg that are a part of Nordic Choice Hotels performed an initiative in collaboration with the city of Gothenburg in 2016. Trash bags, gloves and picking sticks were provided and large amounts of trash were collected from nature.
While Clarion Hotel had an event called the egg hunt, Clarion Collection Hotel Victoria cleaned the streets of Jönköping. The hotel has also recycled leftover bottles in the rooms and donated the money to a host family in Riga.
