No matter which chain or hotel – this is part of the Nordic Choice soul. It is embedded in our culture and our corporate vision.
We all have a responsibility to help those less fortunate than ourselves. Be it in our neighbourhood or far away. Be it the environment or people. This is also true of Nordic Choice. We are proud to have employees who want to take on this responsibility outside the hotel doors.
The hotels live up to their responsibility
In our corporate vision we say that by displaying energy, courage and enthusiasm we want to create a better world. Our hotels back up this philosophy by adopting practical measures.

50 for life
50 for Life, is our humanitarian relief campaign. All proceeds go to UNICEF’s humanitarian relief work in disaster areas. The 2011 hunger and drought catastrophe in the Horn of Africa was the worst to hit the region in more than 60 years. UNICEF was there, distributing therapeutic food, vaccines and vitamins for affected children. Through the “50 for Life” program our guests had the option to add 50 NOK to their bill when checking out. During the month of September we raised 200,000 NOK. Nordic Choice matched that sum. In total, our guests provided 400,000 NOK for the affected children in the Horn of Africa. Previously we have also collected money for the earthquake victims of Haiti, raising a total of 600,000 NOK.
When the rainforest is destroyed, huge amounts of the climate gas CO2 is released. Nordic Choice will do its utmost to prevent this from happening. Hence, we cooperate with the Rainforest Foundation Norway to conserve large areas of rainforest.
