To take care of the world
as we take care of our guests through responsible procurement

The Hospitality Alliance for Responsible Procurement (HARP) is an EcoVadis-powered sector initiative created by a group of hospitality companies and their key global procurement organizations. Each HARP member is committed to accelerating positive impact across the industry by improving the sustainability performance of hospitality suppliers and strengthening actions to support environmental, human and ethical practices over time.

HARP members engage suppliers in their sustainability rating and improvement journey as a peer group. Participating in this process offers various benefits, such as:

  • Strengthen supplier outreach resulting in an increased coverage of the assessed supply base (higher supplier participation)
  • Expand visibility of the broader hospitality industry’s supply chain sustainability performance allowing more informed decisions
  • Enhance synergies in driving improvement with suppliers and third parties
  • Directly engage with industry peers and influential external stakeholders without infringing antitrust regulations
