Our ESG program in action
Below are just a few examples of how our hotels and resorts are creating a positive social impact.
ADVANCING DIVERSITY, INCLUSION AND BELONGINGCentral to both employee experience and social impact is advancing diversity and fostering a culture of inclusion and belonging at our corporate offices and properties worldwide. We do not tolerate discrimination of any kind – no one should be treated differently based on their race, gender, age, religion, nationality, physical or mental disability, sexual orientation, or any other perceived difference. We know that advancing diversity and inclusion creates a better overall quality of life for all. To ensure that all employees feel valued and that they belong at Four Seasons, we have accelerated our global Diversity, Inclusion & Belonging (DIB) strategy in the last several years.

Each year since 1981, employees of the Four Seasons Home Office and Four Seasons Hotel Toronto organize the largest Terry Fox Run in the world, welcoming 3,500 participants from the Toronto community to a full-day event including a 5- or 10-kilometre run, family events, donated lunch and entertainment. Every dollar raised at the annual event goes to the Terry Fox Foundation.
