Global Hotel Alliance (GHA) And Its Hotel Brands Accelerate Responsible Tourism Initiatives In 2022

Jul 5, 2022

Alliance highlights sustainability initiatives spearheaded by its hotel brands GHA and its hotel brands support Boodles Boxing Ball to raise funds for Hope and Homes for Children Global Hotel Alliance (GHA) and its hotel brands are ramping up their responsible tourism efforts in 2022 with new initiatives. The largest alliance of independent hotel brands, encompassing more than 800 hotels across 40 brands in 100 countries, is capitalising on this position of influence to support projects that protect people and the planet. This year, the alliance contributed for the second time to the Boodles Boxing Ball, a social fundraising event to support various charities, which recently took place in London. Some of London society’s most famous faces such as actresses Millie Mackintosh and Sabrina Bartlett, models Roxy Horner and Amber Le Bon, reality TV show star Binky Felstead, television presenter Louise Roe, former football player Gary Lineker and many others attended and watched the high-energy boxing bouts. The Boodles Boxing Ball has raised more than USD 2.5 million over the past six events, with this year’s contributions in support of Hope and Homes for Children, an international charity that works to keep families together, exceeding USD 1.2 million. Together with some of its hotel brands and properties, including Sun International, Kempinski Hotels and Naladhu Private Island, GHA formed exciting holiday lots for silent and live auctions that contributed over USD 75 thousand for a good cause. The exclusive live auction prize from Naladhu Private Island Maldives, a sister property to Anantara Hotels, Resorts & Spas, included a 5-night stay with half board in a fabulous, newly renovated Beach House with Pool, and was topped up with the elite GHA DISCOVERY Titanium status, D$500, the new digital rewards currency, and business class flights, and raised an impressive USD 67,000. “The responsible tourism movement, accelerated by the pandemic, is challenging the hospitality industry to deliver meaningful change. Consumers now expect their favourite brands to reshape the world in a sustainable way, trusting companies that demonstrate social and environmental awareness and avoiding those who do not,” said GHA’s CEO Chris Hartley. “As a brand trusted by 21 million travellers around the world, we have a captive audience of sustainably-minded consumers who are calling on us to help them make responsible travel choices. We have therefore initiated a strategy to meet this need, not only offering stays at some of the world’s most responsibly operated hotels but looking at innovative ways to help members contribute to sustainable projects, whether financially, through DISCOVERY Dollars (D$), or taking part in the community and environmental programmes in the destinations they visit,” he adds. Collectively, GHA brands and hotels lend their support to multiple charitable initiatives globally, including programmes dedicated to education for children, healthcare and social wellbeing, environmental protection and animal welfare. Projects under the Children & Youth Programme theme include the Children’s Hospital Foundation in Queensland, Australia, which helps sick children and their families and conducts research into childhood illnesses, supported by Oaks Hotels, Resorts and Suites; the Kailash Satyarthi Children’s Foundation, a leader in child protection and development, supported by The Leela Palaces, Hotels and Resorts; the Kianh Foundation, a UK and Vietnam registered charity that has been working with children with disabilities in and around Hoi An since 2000, supported by Avani Hotels & Resorts; and the Gift of Happiness Foundation, dedicated to helping underprivileged children in Bangkok, supported by The Sukhothai Hotels & Resorts. Under the Animal Welfare theme, initiatives include the Golden Triangle Asian Elephant Foundation, supported by Anantara Hotels, Resorts & Spas. This renowned foundation provides world-class welfare to elephants in their own dedicated forest in Northern Thailand, sponsors projects that help provide and improve elephant welfare, and implements wild elephant conservation, scientific research and education throughout South-East Asia. The Environmental Protection theme embraces some pioneering projects, with Outrigger Resorts supporting the Polynesian Voyaging Society, a non-profit organisation that perpetuates the art and science of traditional Polynesian voyaging and the spirit of exploration through hands-on educational programmes; the Land & Life Foundation in Kenya, educating communities to protect local wildlife and leverage its tourism potential sustainably, supported by Elewana Collection; and Tivoli Hotels and Resorts supporting the Fundação Projeto Tamar, a private non-profit entity pioneer in marine conservation in Brazil. “These are just a few examples of how GHA and its hotel brands are making a difference, contributing to a brighter future for all and where sustainable practices are the norm,” said Hartley. “Our future initiatives will not only include the roll-out of more pioneering projects supported by our hotel brands but look to involve travellers across multiple touchpoints, from encouraging them to donate D$ to initiatives under the philanthropic themes that resonate with them most. We are committed to ensuring GHA remains a favourite global brand, trusted not just because of the high-quality products and services we offer, but crucially, the responsible approach we take to delivering them.” GHA DISCOVERY is complimentary to join, and travellers can sign up online or download the GHA DISCOVERY app. Travellers can also connect with the programme on Instagram and Facebook .
