Environmental, social & governance
Our goal is to help shape the future of responsible travel together with those who stay, work and partner with us. IHG Malta recognises businesses can have negative impact on the environment.
The key to delivering our strategic priority to care for our people, communities and planet is our “Journey to Tomorrow” plan! At InterContinental Malta, we are considering how our company can safeguard the environment, including many corporate policies addressing the climate change.
Following our ‘Journey to Tomorrow’ commitment, and the Green key accreditation, IHG has taken several steps to ensure sustainable operations such as the provision of filtered glass bottled water which aims to reduce plastic waste by an estimated 300,000. IHG has implemented a linen and towel change system, and a bulk dispensary system for soap, shampoo and shower gel giving guests the opportunity to reuse resources.
In March 2024 InterContinental Malta has been certified with the Green Key ecolabel. Coordinated by the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE), Green Key is a global voluntary eco-certification programme. With more than 4,000 certified hotels and other establishments in 60 countries, Green Key is the leading standard for
excellence in the field of environmental responsibility and sustainable operation within the tourism and hospitality industry. The certification process evaluates the
establishments environmental management, energy conservation, waste management, water conservation, and other sustainable practices.

With hundreds of colleagues in our hotel touching the lives of thousands of people every day, we have an opportunity to help create a future where equality, inclusion and fairness are experienced by all. We will work to champion a diverse culture where everyone can thrive.
We are proud to be at the heart of our communities and recognise the opportunity to shape a positive future for local people and the generations to come. We will work on social projects to improve the lives of people in our community.
During the last 20 years we planted 1300 trees and plants of various sizes and types, which offset 62,400 pounds of CO2 annually. Additionally, the hotel has plans to continue this initiative, further contributing to the environment.
