As businesses face greater local and global challenges, the hospitality sector is doing its part to contribute to a sustainable future for all.

Sustainability is an inclusive development model and the hospitality sector has the responsibility to influence change. LUX* has since long adopted an inclusive business model, supporting equality for all, in all its destinations.
