HRS, the corporate lodging and payment technology platform, announced the addition of Radisson Hotel Group to its Green Stay Initiative (GSI). The group’s more than 1,100 properties in almost 100 countries, according to the announcement, will gradually participate in GSI, beginning with an initial group of hotels in Europe this quarter.

Launched two years ago, the GSI enables corporate hotel procurement leaders to efficiently view and consider sustainability metrics and information amid other categories (i.e., room rates, cancellation policy, etc.) as they make preferred supplier decisions. More than 600 hotel brands across 170-plus countries participate in GSI today, including seven of the top 11 hotel chains in the world, according to HRS. Dozens of Fortune 500 corporations, according to HRS, use the solution as part of their hotel procurement process, with some companies mandating hotels to use the technology in order to secure preferred supplier status.

Gianni Di Fede, senior vice president, revenue management at Radisson, said the solution “makes it easier for our properties to convey their green attributes to corporate procurement audiences.” Using this technology, he said, “simplifies RFP-related administrative processes with HRS corporate clients, which supports our hotels at a time when corporate transient and meeting volume ramps up in 2023.”

Tobias Ragge, CEO of HRS, said, “Resource-challenged hotels gain from precisely this type of automation as they seek to compete for corporate room nights even as they tightly manage their sales-related expenses.”
