Environmental Stewardship

We are committed to setting environmental targets, monitoring the performance of our responsible investments and measuring our progress toward improving the environmental footprint of our properties through the implementation of targeted environmental efficiency projects, equipment upgrades and best practices by our hotel managers.


What we've done

In 2018:
  • Achieved a 35% reduction in GHG emissions per square foot from 2008, equivalent to sequestering annually approximately 250,000 acres of forests – 300 times the size of Central Park in New York City.
  • Achieved a 15% reduction in energy use per square foot from 2008, reducing absolute energy consumption by 230,000 MWh – equivalent to nearly 30,000 homes’ annual electricity.
  • Achieved a 22% reduction in water consumption per occupied room from 2008, reducing absolute water consumption by 2.9M cubic meters – equivalent to over 1,000 Olympic-size swimming pools.
  • Diverted waste from landfill in 75% of major renovation projects.


Grand Hyatt Atlanta in Buckhead

In 2016, Grand Hyatt Atlanta in Buckhead received the Water Innovation Award in the Atlanta Better Buildings Challenge for its innovative strategies and achievements in water conservation. Water efficient technologies contributing to this achievement include a rain water catchment system, low flow showerheads and toilets, a laundry water recycling system and a smart irrigation system. The investments are projected to reduce water use by as much as 40%. As part of a broader commitment to sustainability and building efficiency, the hotel completed an installation of solar thermal panels to heat all of its domestic hot water, estimated to reduce the hotel’s natural gas usage by 25%.

Fairmont Kea Lani, Maui

In 2016, we completed the installation of a photovoltaic system. The 500 kilowatt, 1,528 panel system will generate in excess of 10% of the resort’s total electrical needs. To date, the hotel’s Sustainability Team has launched over 50 environmental initiatives including replacement of aged laundry equipment to reduce gas, electricity and water consumption; and new kitchen-hood systems with sensor-based fan systems to reduce electricity use. The property is also coordinating an internship program to support a lighting retrofit project.

Hyatt Regency Maui Resort and Spa

The Hyatt Regency Maui Resort and Spa partnered with the Sustainable Living Institute of Maui at the University of Hawaii Maui College and Green Building Hawaii to support an internship program in conjunction with a property-wide lighting retrofit. Interns worked alongside the hotel’s engineering team to replace over 15,500 lamps with high-efficiency LED lighting, resulting in an estimated 675,000 kWh saved per year.
