Hilton Worldwide saves a quarter of a billion dollars after going green
There is no thinking twice indeed that the hospitality industry is moving towards the greener side of affairs and leading the way is the Hilton Worldwide organization. The hospitality company has managed to reduce its energy use by a whopping 12.2 percent and carbon output by 12.8 percent since the year 2009! This has resulted in the company saving nearly a quarter of a billion dollars from energy efficiency projects over the past 4 years, an amount that’s simply not ignorable!
Most of this was possible mainly because of the “Living Sustainably” ideology of the Hilton Worldwide’s Travel with Purpose program. Apart from this, Hilton also created the LightStay proprietary system to measure, analyze and report on sustainability data. This system has helped the company save more than $74 million in 2010 alone! Hilton Worldwide sincerely deserves a loud round of applause, loud enough to wake the rest in the hospitality business who’ve yet not considered a more sustainable tomorrow.
