CO2 Offsets

Since we first opened, we’ve leveraged technology and thoughtful strategy to reduce our energy use and continuously minimize GHG emissions. Our intelligent Energy and Building Management Systems save roughly 17% of annual energy consumption and 167 tons of CO2 reduction.

Supporting Causes that Matter

Whether we’re directly supporting our non-profit partners through charitable events or using our platform to raise awareness and ignite positive change, we’re committed to honouring and uplifting the planet, people, and culture in the places we call home.

Our Pillars

Environment

Protecting Our 1 World

Nestled in the center of downtown Toronto, designed to be a retreat from the bustling city, our hotel includes more than 3,300 plants, including native plants more resilient to the local climate, providing you with a sense of balance and restoration, and giving the earth a little more breathing room.

 

People & Equity

Supporting Our People & Communities

Creating a culture of inclusivity is our responsibility as human beings—to each other, and to the beautiful world we share. We stand together in our pledge to grow diverse and equitable representation for everyone in our growing community of team members, guests, and partners.

 

Prosperity

Growing Mindfully and Transperently

Our sanctuary is living proof that luxury hospitality, city living, and legitimate sustainability can exist as one. We’ve spent years collecting data regarding carbon emissions, energy consumption, water stewardship, waste diversion, DEI, biodiversity, and beyond, which has allowed us to remain true to our mission and reduce our impact on the environment as we grow. 

 

A Stay That Supports: This is Veritree

With each hotel stay, you will support forest restoration across Canada with planting projects that address nature, biodiversity, and community wellbeing.

In five years, 1 Hotel Toronto plans to plant 300,000 trees which would fill 9,734 hotel rooms. Learn more about Veritree and our hotel’s impact by speaking to the front desk team.
