Hyatt-2020Hyatt Hotels recently announced a new set of environmental goals in its “Hyatt 2020 Vision” corporate social responsibility report. In 2015, Hyatt will require all new construction and renovation projects of its hotels to achieve LEED or equivalent certification. Water, energy, and greenhouse gas emissions in each of Hyatt’s three regions must be reduced by 25 percent per square meter. In water-stressed regions, water use must be reduced by 30 percent. Managed hotels also must divert at least 40 percent of their waste from landfills. In addition, the hotel chain has partnered with World Wildlife Fund to develop responsible seafood sourcing goals and plans to source more than 50 percent of its seafood purchases from responsible sources. Hyatt also is upgrading lighting, HVAC systems, kitchen, and laundry equipment to reduce energy use. Water conservation efforts include using less water, recycling water, and encouraging colleagues and partners to develop innovative water efficiency solutions. Hyatt has increased it reuse and recycling programs, donating food, toiletries, furniture, and electronics to local shelters and charities. Fourteen Hyatt properties currently are LEED-certified, including it headquarters.
