Marriott is the largest hotel chain in the world if measured by the number of rooms it provides. It has 30 brands, 7,642 properties, and more than 1.4 million rooms in 131 countries. Of the 8,000 properties under its name, about 2,100 are corporate-owned, while the balance is franchised.
Marriott is an environmental leader. From a 2016 baseline, it has vowed to reduce water intensity by 15%, carbon intensity by 30%, and waste-to-landfill by 45% by 2025. It has also promised to run its hotels using 30% renewable energy while ensuring they meet the highest efficiency standards by 2025.
“We want to be known as the world’s favorite travel company while fulfilling our global responsibility to be a force for good,” said Denise Naguib, vice president, sustainability and supplier diversity, Marriott International, who has spoken at Environment+Energy Leader conferences in the past. “Partnering with a solutions provider such as Ecolab helps us achieve our sustainability goals and ensure that we provide an exemplary experience to our guests.”
