Hyatt Hotels Corporation has launched a global Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) platform named World of Care to address pressing challenges and enact meaningful change within the hospitality industry.
Building on more than 60 years of Hyatt’s efforts to care for the planet, people, and responsible business, the introduction of World of Care will support Hyatt’s key initiatives and milestones, including:
- Sharing, for the first time, detailed workforce diversity data;
- Rolling out a new global human trafficking training, one of the most comprehensive in the hospitality industry;
- Elevating wellbeing for global colleagues through a dedicated week of programming and new wellness assessment.
Under its 2020 environmental framework, Hyatt has achieved its goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 25% per square meter across its 3 regions.
Hyatt’s new environmental framework focuses on climate change and water conservation, waste and circularity, responsible sourcing and thriving destinations. This new framework will foster joint actions across departments, suppliers and many other parties.
The group also sets a 2030 target to reduce a significant amount of greenhouse gas emissions from Hyatt hotels. At the same time, the hotels in the group are also contributing to the UN Sustainable Development Goals by working towards reducing food waste globally by 2030.
The Group also publishes on the new platform detailed data on workforce diversity as part of its acceleration of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DE&I).
In addition, the group has also rolled out training courses on human trafficking, programs to inspire and advance wellness for global colleagues, and supported young adults to identify and reach their full potential.
