Hilton Worldwide has announced that it will reduce the environmental impact of meetings and events held at more than 90 hotels and resorts in Asia Pacific. Through a new initiative called the Clean Air Program, launched on May 1, meeting planners and delegates can play their part in reducing carbon emissions. This is made possible via Hilton’s partnership with carbon offset solutions provider Climate Friendly.
When customers choose any of Hilton’s participating hotels as meeting venues, the Clean Air Program will provide a calculation of the carbon emission of the event at no cost to the customers. Hilton will then purchase the equivalent carbon credits to finance environmentally-friendly projects across Asia Pacific.
Martin Rinck, president, Asia Pacific, Hilton Worldwide said, “Sustainability is part and parcel of how we operate as a business. Apart from consistently seeking opportunities to reduce waste and conserve energy in our day to day operations, the Clean Air Program allows us to take our commitment to sustainability one step further. By offsetting carbon emission from meetings and events, it means that we can provide essential finance to renewable energy, forest protection and restoration projects which is critical in mitigating climate change.”
