Audi

We are driving sustainably forward with the official electric vehicle of 1 Hotels, the fully electric Audi e-tron lineup. Enjoy the Audi Experience and take advantage of a chauffeured ride or test-drive at your own pace during your stay. Either way, enjoy the electrifying exploration.

Copia

Copia is dedicated to eliminating food waste and hunger by connecting businesses with excess food to communities in need. We've partnered with Copia to ensure that surplus food from our hotels is redistributed to local nonprofits, helping to feed those who need it most while reducing food waste and its environmental impact.

Foodprint Group

Foodprint Group drives Zero Waste performance in the hospitality sector with their tried and tested methodology, over 60 resources, and their daily waste tracking app, Foodprint Trax®. Since using Foodprint Trax®, we have diverted 1,055 tons of material from landfill or incineration, an impact equivalent to 1,864 MT carbon emissions saved, 402 cars off the road for 1 year, and 2,210 acres of forests sequestering CO2.

Housing Works

Housing Works is a healing community of people living with and affected by HIV/AIDS with a mission to end the dual crises of homelessness and AIDS. We've partnered for our 1 Less Thing initiative, where we ask guests to leave behind gently used clothing that's donated to Housing Works to distribute to those in need.

Legend Energy Advisors

Legend Energy Advisors supports us in our pursuit of being the world’s most sustainable hospitality company. We work together to install connected devices throughout our energy and water infrastructure and actively monitor resource consumption. Our infrastructure retrofits and upgrades save energy, water, gas and of course, emissions to make us more climate resilient.

NRDC

NRDC works to safeguard the earth – its people, its plants and animals, and the natural systems on which all life depends. We've partnered with NRDC for hotel packages with donations, proceeds from t-shirts sales during our 2018 Earth Day Every Day campaign, and as a resource for sharing content with our audiences.

Oceanic Global

Oceanic Global is an environmental advocacy organization that connects with universal passions of art, music, fashion, hospitality, technology, and more, meeting people where they're already engaged. We've partnered for happy hours, special events, and a year-long film series, “Films for Thought.”

PATH Water

PATH Water is forging the path to end single-use plastic bottles. PATH Water’s refillable and 100% recyclable aluminum bottled waters are available in all US and Canada sanctuaries. As of 2022, 1 Hotels and PATH Water have saved over 2.5 million bottles from going into oceans and landfills.

The Nature Conservancy

The Nature Conservancy focuses on taking on the planet’s biggest, most important challenges by focusing on priorities that science shows are the most urgent and where their innovation and expertise can be game changers. We've partnered for hotel packages and events and as a local charity partner for 1 Hotel Central Park.
