Discover Community Footprints, our environmental and social responsibility program.


These are the guiding principles of our social and environmental responsibility program, Community Footprints, which aligns us around the issues that are important to the communities where we operate. By mobilizing our resources and skill-based volunteer efforts, we strive to make a difference through child well-being; hunger and poverty relief; and environmental responsibility. The Ritz-Carlton was the first Founding Partner of IMPACT 2030, a private-sector led initiative in collaboration with the United Nations and other global stakeholders, that will marshal corporate volunteering action to advance the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals.

“At The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company, our Ladies and Gentlemen are the heart of our company. They are proud to share their skills and knowledge to lift up the communities around them, inspire our customers to join us in our efforts, and create new opportunities to help the global community achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. The Ritz-Carlton is proud to be the first Founding Partner of IMPACT 2030 and to promote the ability of our employees to make a real and sustainable impact.”
