Environmental Sustainability Policy
At Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc., we believe that economic growth and the well-being of society are inextricably tied to the health of the environment. Accordingly, we embrace our responsibility for environmental stewardship and are committed to integrating leading environmental practices and sustainability principles into our core business strategy.
Through collaboration with our hotel owners, franchisees, suppliers and business partners, we will actively work to reduce the environmental impact of our business activities and to continually improve and innovate on practices aimed at:
- conserving natural resources
- minimizing waste and pollution
- enhancing indoor environmental quality
- establishing and reporting on key environmental performance indicators
- raising environmental awareness among our associates, guests and communities.
We acknowledge that, in many ways, we, like the global community we serve, are only in the early stages of developing and implementing the many changes that will be necessary to achieve these vital goals. Nonetheless, we strongly believe that our efforts to support a healthy environment serve the interests of both current and future generations and constitute the foundation for enduring success.
