Preserving Environment

We have a shared responsibility to be good stewards of natural resources.

We leverage LightStay, our proprietary corporate responsibility performance measurement platform, to understand how our hotels are managing energy, water and waste – allowing us to drive improvements over time. Since launching LightStay, we’ve gathered more than seven years of global data that allows us to create tools and trainings for hotels, save value for our company and owners, and improve our reporting to share best practices and reduce our impact.
