Hilton monitoring scheme reports major energy savings

Hilton Worldwide has announced the 2010 results of LightStay, its sustainability measurement system. Since the introduction of the monitoring programme, the hotel group has saved more than US$74 million in utility costs, thanks to a 6.6% drop in energy use, a 7.8% cut in carbon emissions, a 19% cut in waste output and a 3.8% reduction in water use. To date, these efficiency savings equate to the removal of more than 50,000 cars from the road, water savings that could fill more than 1,000 swimming pools and energy conservation that could provide power to nearly 20,000 homes a year. As part of Hilton’s environmental push, 3,750 properties across ten international brands are required to use LightStay by this December.
