According to the latest report on the process of greening-up the working agenda of Hilton Worldwide, this particular company has managed to cut down its waste output by 20%, and is well on track as far as its goal to better manage water and electricity resources is concerned.
Moreover, it seems that Hilton Worldwide succeeded in reducing its waste output to such an extent about two years ahead of schedule.
For those unaware, back in 2011 Hilton Worldwide was the first major multi-brand company specializing in hospitality to adopt LightStay™, which is basically a system in charge of measuring sustainability performances.
At that time, the LightStay™ system was made available to those in charge of managing 3,900 properties spread across 91 countries.
As well as this, the company later on integrated the so-called Hotel Carbon Measurement Initiative, so it should come as no surprise that the numbers listed in its latest sustainability report are quite noteworthy.
reports that, since implementing the aforementioned green-oriented systems, the company has cut its carbon output by 10.9%, its waste output by 23.3%, its energy use by 9.7%, and its water use by 7.5%.
In case anyone was wondering, these achievements in terms of environmental protection have translated in savings of up to $147 million (113.162 million euros) for the company.
The same source quotes Christopher J. Nassetta, presently employed as president and chief executive officer for Hilton Worldwide, who made a case of how, “Sustainability is an increasing focus across all our brands and is critical to the operations of our business.”
“LightStay™ provides us with a global platform to respond to the challenges of managing natural resource constraints, and Hilton Worldwide is dedicated to empowering our property owners and operators with tools that improve economic and sustainability performance at all levels of our company,” he goes on to explain.
