LONDON, U.K. — InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) has committed to serving 100-per-cent cage-free eggs throughout its U.S., Canadian and European operations by 2022. This measure is part of an overall goal to source only cage-free eggs across all IHG properties worldwide by 2025.
“As a global business with a presence in nearly 100 countries, we have a huge opportunity to make a real and positive impact by sourcing food items sustainably,” says Paul Snyder, VP of Corporate Responsibility – Environmental Sustainability, IHG. “The long-term commitment we are making around cage-free eggs provides further evidence of this and is an extremely important addition to our wider Responsible Business agenda. Working with our partners, we look forward to encouraging supply chains around the world to increase the availability of cage-free eggs, so that our hotels can fulfill our ambition.”
This latest initiative builds on IHG’s Responsible Business agenda, which encourages hotels to use environmentally friendly and locally sourced products and services, as well as the 2015 launch of a comprehensive, global Sustainable Seafood Policy.
