At The Landmark London, we strongly believe that it is vital to foster sustainable development and make a positive difference in the communities in which we live and work. The Landmark London embraces this policy through the ‘Giving Something Back team’ and ‘Sustainability Taskforce’, who are formed by team members at all levels and departments and are in charge of keeping this policy alive through different initiatives and activities. Every team member who wishes to become part of these two groups is welcome to do so.
The organisation is committed to acting responsibly, and to protect the environment. All employees are required to:
- Recycle materials wherever possible
- Not print off e-mails unnecessarily
- Consider the ethical stance of suppliers before placing orders
- Dispose of any chemicals responsibly and carefully
- Think about the impact of their actions on the local community
As part of our pledge to social responsibility, we have chosen to work with the following charities through various activities:
Springboard Charity, which aims to raise awareness regarding hospitality industry among young adults. The aim is to raise vital funds to help young disadvantaged people develop the skills, confidence and motivation to secure sustainable employment in hospitality, leisure and tourism in the UK.
Hospitality Action was established in 1837 and has since offered vital assistance to all who work, or have worked within hospitality in the UK. Whatever challenge the person faces – from physical illness or mental health issues to financial difficulty, family problems to addiction – Hospitality Action is there to get the person back on his/her feet again.
Macmillan Cancer Support is one of the largest British charities and provides specialist health care, information and financial support to people affected by cancer. It also looks at the social, emotional and practical impact cancer can have, and campaigns for better cancer care.
COSMIC, supports the children’s intensive care unit at St Mary’s Hospital in London by helping patients and their families, and enabling the dedicated team to treat hundreds of critically ill children each year.
