Circularity is proud to be hosting the 2023 Conference at the Grand Hyatt Melbourne, who are committed to advancing environmental action, aligning with the circular principles of our event.
Hyatt has advanced its global Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) strategy through World of Care, which was derived by closely listening to what is most important to colleagues, guests, customers, hotel owners, investors and the communities in which Hyatt hotels operate around the world.
“Over the past 65+ years, care has been at the heart of everything we do at Hyatt, which is why caring for the planet, people and responsible business – the three pillars of World of Care – are so deeply embedded across our organization,” shared Margaret Egan, executive vice president, general counsel and executive sponsor of World of Care.
From a pilot program to reduce food waste in Asia Pacific to engaging hotels on the use of renewable electricity in the United States and Europe, Hyatt teams across the globe are accelerating efforts toward Hyatt’s 2030 Environmental Goals – focused on areas of climate change and water conservation, waste and circularity, responsible sourcing and thriving destinations.
As part of the waste and circularity goals, seven Hyatt hotels in Asia Pacific conducted food waste prevention pilots in 2022, including Grand Hyatt Seoul in South Korea and Hyatt Regency Beijing Wangjing in China with additional Hyatt hotels planning to begin pilots later this year.
Hyatt affirmed its commitment to fulfill the company’s values through other organizations it does business with by adding a new focus area: Working with Other Businesses. This includes owner, operator and supplier engagement, a Supplier Code of Conduct, and a supplier diversity program. Additionally, Hyatt is working with suppliers to engage EcoVadis, an organization that screens suppliers on criteria such as environment, labour and human rights, ethics, and sustainable procurement.
