This must be the season for the release of sustainability reports. Marriott International issued its 2014 Sustainability Report last month. Hyatt Hotels Corp. released its 2013-2014 Corporate Responsibility Report in the past few weeks. Last week Caesars Entertainment released its Corporate Citizenship Report and Wyndham Worldwide just released its 2013 Sustainability Responsibility Report. Articles about all but the Caesars report can be found on Green Lodging News. In this blog I would like to focus on Wyndham’s report. First off, the company’s Wyndham Green program is now in its eighth year. As has other companies, Wyndham has set 2020 goals for its operationally controlled assets. Using 2010 as a baseline, Wyndham intends to reduce its carbon emissions and water consumption per square foot by 20 percent by 2020. So far it has reduced water usage globally by 16 percent per square foot and carbon emissions by 13 percent per square foot when compared with the 2010 baseline.
