Environmental Focus Areas

We’re committed to minimizing our impact on climate change by reducing our emissions.

To help reduce our carbon footprint, we want to increase the implementation of energy efficiency projects and the usage of renewable energy where feasible.

We support initiatives to reduce the amount of waste that goes to landfills—from mandatory recycling requirements to single-use plastic minimization.

We’re committed to identifying risks and opportunities and recommend our hotels install low-flow fixtures and implement other water-conserving programs.

As we expand our portfolio of hotels, we’ll continue to evaluate biodiversity-related risks, while implementing practices and programs to help protect natural habitats.
