Plant with us

We are using ForestNation Tree kits to raise awareness about Marriott’s sustainability and social impact goals with our business partners and associates. We want to engage them in the issues that we all face and plant the seed of change with them.

We are excited to start a growing Marriott forest and that we will be able to plant more trees in the future.

We chose ForestNation because we really liked their concept ‘you plant one, we plant one’ It is a simple yet very effective campaign that allows us to be part of something bigger and ties in well with our sustainability agenda and how we can do things concretely to mitigate our impact on the environment.

Serve360

At Marriott International, we believe we have a responsibility and vested interest in helping to address some of the world’s most pressing social, environmental and economic issues.

With our size and global scale, we are well positioned to become part of the solution — whether that means shrinking our environmental footprint; tackling unemployment by investing in workforce training; constructing and operating sustainable hotels; supporting our communities in times of natural disaster; or advocating for human rights throughout and beyond our business.

Doing Good in Every Direction

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 opportunities in the hospitality industry.
• Welcome All & Advance Human Rights – Creating a safe and welcoming environment for our associates and travelers alike.

Our Social Responsibility

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.
