Responsible Procurement in Action

“A new brand making a positive impact from day one”

Sustainability is an important part of the voco brand. We are focused on delivering the brand’s hallmarks sustainably and at the right cost for owners, without compromising on the quality guests expect from an upscale brand. Some of the key sustainability initiatives are:

  • Bedding made from “Smartdown” using 100% recycled materials. 150 recycled plastic bottles used to make one duvet.
  • Aveda “large-format” bathroom amenity dispensing solution. 80% less plastic waste vs. small single-use bottles.
  • Replacement of palm oil in bathroom amenities with eco-friendlier alternatives.
  • Filtered water solution with glass bottles in every room, saving 300 bottles per room each year.
  • Biodegradable vanity kit amenities, including the toothbrush and razor.
  • Aerated shower heads reduce water usage and lower energy consumption used to heat water.

The Code of Conduct for our Suppliers

IHG works with suppliers who share our values of doing business responsibly. Every IHG supplier is required to adhere to our Vendor Code of Conduct, which sets out the requirements, principles and practices that IHG has adopted to promote ethical conduct in the workplace, safe working conditions in the supply chain, treatment of persons with respect and dignity, and environmentally responsible practices. These are the minimum standards under which IHG suppliers are expected to operate, and IHG encourages suppliers to exceed the requirements.
