Park Plaza Charity Support - We Care!

Gemeinnütziges Engagement bei Park Plaza

At Park Plaza Hotels & Resorts, Responsible Business is part of our everyday operations. We pride ourselves on being responsible in everything we do as a business, through inspiring our guests, creating centres of excellence, developing our people and being part of our communities. This thinking complements the range of unique hospitality experiences offered across all of our hotels, restaurants, bars, spas and the operations that make up our business for our guests, team members, partners, shareholders and members of the communities in which we operate.

earth hour 10th anniversary Save tomorrow, today! Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Earth Hour 10th Anniversary

The Global WWF movement has, over the last 10 years, achieved massively positive environmental impact. On March 25th 2017, we united to shine a light on climate action and were part of an unprecedented 187 countries, territories and over 3,000 landmarks who switched off their lights to take part in the need for action on climate change

Our brandwide theme this year was #shinealight to #makeclimatematter, so we got creative and offered themed cocktails across our restaurant and bars to support the cause. The ultimate goal is to change laws, lives and our planet.

Save tomorrow´s trees today!

Park Plaza Hotels & Resorts supports the sustainability and growth of trees which are so crucial in providing oxygen and greenery. We will continue to donate volunteering hours to Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust to maintain the 40 trees planted in 2016,  which at the time represented the 40 international Park Plaza Hotels & Resorts properties in operation around the world as part of the Park Plaza Responsible Business Month.

Park Plaza donated a selection of funds to Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust and World Childhood Foundation charity

Join us in making a difference and "Save Tomorrow's Trees, Today" with Park Plaza.

Earth Hour

Global campaign started by WWF to reduce carbon emissions and protect the planet. On the 19th March 2016, Earth Hour brought together communities from across the world celebrating a commitment to the planet by switching off lights for one designated hour. People taking part were encouraged to continue the commitment to Earth Hour for longer than the designated hour in question. 

Our brand wide theme for this year’s Earth Hour is: #FUNPLUGGED. In light of this – we were serving a themed Funplugged & Tonic cocktail across all our hotel bars and lounges during the period 14-20 March 2016.
