Accor's Greater China CSR Program Honored By UN

"Empowerment Builds the Future" — an ongoing sustainable CSR program initiated by Accor Greater China and supported by Accor Foundation — has been selected as a case study in the 2010 Global Report on Women in Tourism due to its recognized achievement in reshaping the future of HIV/Aids affected women and children in China. The Global Report — the result of a close collaboration between UNWTO and UN Women — is the first worldwide attempt to map the participation of women in the tourism industry. Unveiled by Accor Greater China in partnership with Chi Heng Foundation in November 2009, the three-year charity program has made notable achievements by continuously drawing public attention to the plight of HIV/AIDS affected families via Accor's extensive hotel network in Greater China.
