Going Green: The Importance of Sustainability

Going Green: The Importance of Sustainability

World Environment Day took place in the beginning of June, representing the United Nations' promotion of worldwide awareness and action for the environment. Over the years, it has grown to be one of the largest global platforms for public outreach, celebrated by millions of people in over 100 countries. In light of the focus on green initiatives, many members of the hospitality industry are taking steps to reduce their impact on the environment. 

This year, Hilton Hotels will become the first major hotel chain to release science-based targets for reducing carbon emissions. The brand has delivered an aggressive program called 2030 Commitments to cut its environmental footprint in half and double its social impact investments by 2030.

"For nearly 100 years, Hilton has been driven by our mission to have a positive impact on the communities surrounding our hotels," Hilton CEO Christopher Nassetta said in a press release. "In this Golden Age of Travel, we are taking a leadership role to ensure that the destinations where travelers work, relax, learn and explore are vibrant and resilient for generations of adventurers yet to come."
