Corporate social responsibility is fundamental to a first-in-class business operation. It is also Langham Hospitality Investments Limited (LHIL)’s commitment to contributing to the sustainable development of the environment and society.
A robust system is in place to ensure sustainable practices to protect the environment at our hotels.

Key performance areas of EarthCheck Standard include greenhouse gas emissions, energy efficiency, conservation and management. All three hotels are certified to EarthCheck Silver. Langham Place, Mongkok, Hong Kong is also accredited to ISO 14001 certification and was awarded the Gold Award of the Hong Kong Environmental Excellence Award - Hotels and Recreational Clubs Sector.
The hotel management team has also developed “Guests of the Earth” programme which focuses on engaging our key stakeholder - the customers to participate in the green journey.
We are committed to making positive influences on local communities. Being awardees of Caring Company for over 5 years, our hotels have been working with local community partners through various sponsorships and donation programmes.
