IGH teams up with EnviroSpark to expand EV charging

IHG will provide hotel owners with an EV charging guide with best practices to encourage the installation of chargers.

IHG Hotels & Resorts (IHG) revealed an agreement with EnviroSpark to make electric vehicle chargers (EVCs) available to all IHG-branded hotels across the United States and Canada. IHG hotels can now partner with EnviroSpark on EVCs depending on their individual needs and requirements. The company said this agreement will further expand its 1,100 hotels globally with EVCs.

To help travelers plan, IHG said it has added an EV-charger search filter on its IHG One Rewards mobile app alongside a wide set of mapping features.

“Providing guests with more EV-charging convenience is a natural next step for IHG,” Brian McGuinness, SVP of global guest experience at IHG Hotels & Resorts, said. “Through our agreement with EnviroSpark, we’re providing even more options for IHG owners to install EVCs at hotels while making travel easier for a growing segment of sustainability-minded travelers.”

IHG said it is also supporting hotel owners with an EV charging guide with best practices to encourage the installation of EV chargers across its portfolio of more than 4,100 open hotels in the U.S. and Canada.

IHG said its collaboration with EnviroSpark aligns with the company’s business plan, Journey to Tomorrow, which includes a set of sustainability commitments.
