Community Footprints was institutionalized by The Ritz-Carlton in 2002, to tackle three key global issues; child well-being, hunger and poverty relief and environmental responsibility. The company integrates Community Footprints within its business goals, placing it as a foundational piece in the company's business management model, incorporating it as a key success factor, and has developed robust metrics to measure progress.
