Environmental Responsibility

At The Ritz-Carlton, we have a genuine commitment to be supportive to the community and sensitive to the environment. Our environmental responsibility initiatives deliver an unparalleled guest experience while protecting our natural resources. We are committed to engaging our Ladies and Gentlemen in a comprehensive sustainability strategy, led by our property-based Ritz-Carlton Environmental Action Conservation Teams (REACT). Within our hotels, we are mindful of our impact on the environment by reducing energy and water usage, offering a linen and terry reuse program, implementing recycling initiatives, and utilizing environmentally preferable cleaning products. Our Ladies and Gentlemen are proud to offer organic and local foods and sustainable seafood in our restaurants, organic treatments and products in our spas, paperless billing to guests upon checkout, and continuously seek opportunities to purchase more sustainable products throughout the hotel. Locally, our ladies and gentlemen work to better the environment through community projects such as native plant restoration, the protection of endangered species and the creation of community gardens.


VolunTeaming is now offered under The Ritz-Carlton social responsibility program, Community Footprints. Transcending traditional group activities, VolunTeaming combines teambuilding with volunteer activities that create lasting memories for the participants. Recognizing that many groups want their teambuilding time to make a meaningful contribution, these programs enable guests to be a force for good and feel personally connected to the place that they visit.

Project MANA Care Packages
Project MANA aims to dramatically reduce the incidence of hunger by providing hunger relief, alleviating the causes of hunger and promoting nutrition through education and awareness. Group guests can join this socially responsible effort by assembling care packages that will be donated to the Project MANA homeless shelter. This meaningful teambuilding activity will enable your group guests to be a force for good while making a positive impact on the community.

Truckee Community Garden Give Back
The mission of Project MANA (Making Adequate Nutrition Accessible) is to reduce the incidence of hunger and its detrimental effects upon those in need. Group guests can join the effort by helping with gardening, planting and maintenance at the Project’s Community Garden. Produce harvested will be donated to clients for use as well as to educate them on the benefits of a healthy diet. This socially responsible activity will unite your group in a common goal of giving back.

Please contact your meetings and special events professional for details on how VolunTeaming activities can be matched to group.
