Four Seasons launches website chronicling corporate responsibility initiatives

TORONTO Marking its 50th anniversary, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts has launched a website dedicated to chronicling the company’s various corporate responsibility initiatives. The site,, highlights the company’s efforts in three primary areas: supporting sustainability, building communities and advancing cancer research.

“Four Seasons has always been guided by the Golden Rule—treating others as we would like to be treated,” says President and CEO Kathleen Taylor. “The Golden Rule inspires every interaction with our guests, our employees, our business partners and with each other. Through this website, we’re proud to show the ways the Golden Rule inspires us to give back to our communities.”

Four Seasons properties are active in an array of sustainability initiatives, from preserving ancient coastal ponds in Hawaii to regenerating coral reefs in the Maldives, tracking endangered sea turtles in Nevis, saving elephants in Thailand, reducing waste, and conserving energy and water at its properties around the world.

The company is committed to being a responsible and caring community partner by having a positive economic impact and supporting community goals, both inside and outside its hotels and resorts. Initiatives include training and mentoring programs for young people such as a partnership with the Vatsalya Foundation in Mumbai and apprenticeship programs in the Maldives; providing textbooks for local children and repairing schools in Costa Rica; building homes for the less fortunate in Florida; and supporting orphanages in Jakarta, Riyadh, Macau and Bali.

For more than 30 years, Four Seasons has been a leading advocate for cancer research through local efforts and broader campaigns, including the Terry Fox Run, which is now the world’s largest single-day fundraiser, held in 50 countries annually. Collectively, the company’s corporate offices, hotels and resorts raise millions of dollars annually to support and raise awareness of cancer research and care.
