Hyatt Announces Global Initiative to Source Seafood Responsibly in Partnership with World Wildlife Fund

8/13/2014

CHICAGO—Hyatt Hotels Corp. announced a global initiative to increase procurement of responsibly sourced seafood at Hyatt hotels, starting with an initial goal of responsibly sourcing more than 50 percent of their inventory by 2018. As a part of this effort, Hyatt will also work toward purchasing more than 15 percent of its seafood supply from fisheries or farms that have been certified by the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) or the Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC). This is the first phase of a long-term seafood sustainability strategy in partnership with World Wildlife Fund (WWF), a leading global conservation organization, to build on Hyatt’s existing environmental stewardship. The partnership also focuses on enhancing the sustainability of seafood sourcing at Hyatt hotels by eliminating the procurement of highly vulnerable seafood species. “We are deeply focused on improving the health of our planet and our communities by implementing sustainable practices, and we hope that this effort to responsibly source more than 50 percent of seafood purchased by our hotels by 2018 will set a new standard for the hospitality industry,” said Mark Hoplamazian, President and CEO of Hyatt Hotels Corp.

Radisson Hotel New Rochelle Investing Almost $2 Million in Energy Efficiency

7/21/2014

NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y.—The Radisson Hotel New Rochelle is undergoing almost $2 million in updates to improve the energy efficiency of the 10-story, 129-room property. According to Colby Brock, General Manager of the hotel, the first phase of the renovation included replacing all PTAC units with new, more energy efficient versions with digital controls. The second and most expensive part of the renovation—one costing about a million dollars—was the replacement of the boiler plant with one with digital controls. That upgrade is expected to reduce energy costs by $250,000 a year, gas consumption by more than 35 percent, and emissions by 750 tons annually. “The direct digital control system allows us to have more zones, or more points of control, which enables us to adjust specific areas of the property,” Brock says.
