BOSTON, Mass. — The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company, L.L.C., which already offers electric-vehicle charging stations at many of its North American properties, just announced the expansion of this initiative into its international locations. The company’s charging stations allow guests to charge their electric vehicles for the next 240 kilometres in two-and-a-half hours.
“Our organization is committed to seeking ways to inspire people to live differently and to adopt a lifestyle in which we can travel responsibly, comfortably and create memories that will last a lifetime,” says Ed French, Sales & Marketing chief officer, The Ritz-Carlton. “Commitment to the community and environment was part of our original 1983 mission statement. Globally, we focus our efforts in three areas, one of which is environmental responsibility. Our approach is to merge our global strategy with local perspective, allowing us to integrate sustainable initiatives across the broad range of geographic locations in both remote and urban communities where our company has operations.”
