Despite operating under unusual circumstances over the past year, the hotels under leading hospitality company Hilton kept its focus on reducing its environmental footprint through responsible hospitality across their value chain.
Mindfully present in a region which is heavily dependent on travel, each of Hilton’s 45 hotels in South East Asia invested time and effort into initiatives towards protecting the world’s natural resources through energy and carbon management, water stewardship, waste reduction and responsible sourcing.
From sustainable dining to wildlife conservation, guests passionate about regenerative travel can now witness and participate in various environmental initiatives at Hilton’s hotels and resorts across South East Asia that are led by the dedicated team members in the hotels.
“As a hotel company of our scale and heritage, Hilton recognizes our ability and responsibility to create positive change in the communities that we operate in. We are extremely proud of our hotels and resorts in South East Asia for stepping up to the challenge and working towards furthering the sustainability agenda through collective efforts in plastic reduction, food waste management and other conservation initiatives.

The journey towards achieving our destination stewardship goals will continue in 2021 and beyond,” said Paul Hutton, vice president, Operations, South East Asia, Hilton.
A number of sustainability efforts by hotels and resorts in South East Asia are shining examples of Hilton’s push for sustainable travel.
The recently released 2020 Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Report by Hilton also highlights the company’s environmental and social performance during a tumultuous year. Hilton was named the 2020 Global Industry Leader on the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices, the most prestigious ranking for corporate responsibility and sustainability performance, for the second consecutive year as the company remained fully committed to halving its environmental impact.
They took immediate action to train hotel teams to adopt technique to conserve resources in times of low occupancy and continued to enhance Hilton’s award-winning LightStay program, which all of Hilton’s 6,400+ hotels use to measure and manage their environmental and social impact.
