Sustainability is a brand standard

LightStay™ – From Commitment to Action.  The LightStay™ system analyzes performance across 200 operational practices, such as housekeeping, paper product usage, food waste, chemical storage, air quality, and transportation. LightStay™ also provides a “meeting impact calculator” feature that calculates the environmental impact of any meeting or conference held at a property.

Learning

We understand the impact of property level and corporate initiatives and share best practices across the global system.


Continuous Improvement

Sustainability isn't a program. Instead, sustainable actions are integrated into how we deliver hotel performance around the globe and a better experience for our guests.


Measurement

LightStay™, our proprietary system, analyzes and reports sustainability performance at each property.


Reporting & Verification

We use a third party to verify our system, processes, and results. Just like a financial statement, we can validate current performance while establishing benchmarks for continuous future improvement.
