Hilton and Responsible Business
Founded on the basis that travel and tourism enriches people’s lives and provides economic and social benefit to local communities, to this day, Hilton is committed to doing the right thing by guests, the environment and local communities. Hilton’s CSR programme, Travel with Purpose has brought together these values for the last seven years, focusing the company’s shared vision and strategic priorities including creating opportunities, strengthening communities, celebrating cultures and living sustainably.
In 2010 the company unveiled LightStay – a propriety system to measure and analyse their sustainability performance. Embedded in this programme is ITP’s Hotel Carbon Measurement Initiative, which Hilton were involved in creating alongside other ITP members. Hilton are also actively involved in working groups on Human Trafficking, Supply Chains and Water and Hilton properties in Brazil, Mexico, Vietnam and Romania participate in YCI.
