Shaping the Global Future
Developing a hotel that changes the future with the rest of the world
The 17th part in the GINZA×CSR series introduces the Ginza Grand Hotel that is a core facility of Granvista Hotels & Resorts. After completing vast renovations, it held a grand opening in May 2014 as a hotel that would share Ginza’s value with the world based on the corporate vision of “local values shaping the global future.” We asked General Manager Yayoi Naka about the “Shaping the Global Future” program for creating shared value being pursued by the Granvista Group.
