In 2017, we embarked on a bold multi-year journey to help improve some of the world’s acute conditions and help address climate change, which poses a serious threat to business and society globally. Our new sustainability and social impact platform, Serve 360: Doing Good in Every Direction, is guiding the company’s efforts and delivering positive results through four priority areas, or what we call our “coordinates”:
• Nurture Our World – Advancing the resiliency and development of our communities.
• Sustain Responsible Operations – Reducing the company’s environmental impacts, sourcing responsibly and building and operating sustainable hotels.
• Empower Through Opportunity – Helping people explore opportunity in the hospitality industry.
• Welcome All & Advance Human Rights – Creating a safe and welcoming environment for our associates and travelers alike.
We are committed to removing disposable plastic straws and stirrers from our more than 6,500 properties across 30 brands around the world by July 2019 — a decision that could eliminate more than 1 billion plastic straws a year. Since we launched our human trafficking training in 2017, we trained more than 500,000 associates on human trafficking awareness.
