Environmental Projects

Featured Initiatives

1 Hotel South Beach

Our 1 Hotel South Beach is at the forefront of leading-edge sustainability practices. Designed with biophilic design principles for both environmental and human health purposes, the hotel is LEED Silver-certified and was built using recycled materials—including reclaimed and repurposed wood from Alaska and Colorado. Energy and water consumption are monitored in real-time across the entire property. The hotel also employs compostable room amenities and reusable wooden key cards to support its Plastic-Free Initiative, as well as a composting machine to separate organic waste. Additionally, the hotel has partnered with Food Rescue US to donate leftover food from events to nearby shelters and Debris Free Oceans to help eradicate marine debris.

Andaz Maui at Wailea Resort

With the completion of a PV system at our newly acquired Andaz Maui at Wailea Resort, nearly all our hotels in Hawaii have PV systems to generate on-site solar. Completed in January 2019, the 280 kilowatt, 806 panel PV system produced 450 megawatt-hours of electricity in its first year of operation representing over 8% of the main resort electrical load.

Denver Marriott Tech Center

The property participated in a 4-month pilot project led by the Executive Chef to implement an enhanced organics separation and measurement program to help further reduce food waste. The property was one of the first pilot properties to successfully roll out the program and report food waste data through weekly staff meetings to reinforce the program, which included optimized bin placement and tracking and WWF-created signage. The pilot raised food waste awareness with the culinary and stewarding staff resulting in increased cross-utilization of food ingredients from different events and streamlining the development of menus while increasing food recovery for reuse.

Fairmont Kea Lani, Maui

In 2019 Host began construction on a 252 kilowatt expansion of an existing 500 kilowatt solar PV system. The combined 752 kilowatt, 2,228 panel system will produce over 1200 megawatt-hours of electricity annually reducing the resort energy load by over 14%.

Hyatt Regency Maui Resort and Spa

Host completed a 112 kilowatt expansion of the Hyatt Regency Maui solar PV system in 2019, bringing the total onsite PV generation system size to 710 kilowatts. The upsized 2,142-panel system will produce over 1,074 megawatt-hours of electricity annually - thereby providing approximately 11% of the total resort electrical load. Additionally, Hyatt Regency Maui Resort and Spa is Host’s latest LEED® property to receive LEED® Gold Certification. Some of the property’s featured sustainability initiatives include a food waste diversion program through which fruit and vegetable scraps are sorted and donated to local pig farms for feed and compost, high-efficiency shower heads in all guestrooms that reduce water consumption by over 30% and an Integrated Pest Management plan that outlines effective pest elimination using non-toxic methods. The property also features an on-site, self-guided sustainability tour to educate guests, visitors, and associates alike of these efforts.

Hyatt Regency San Francisco Airport

Hyatt Regency San Francisco Airport is Host’s seventh LEED® property and the first to receive LEED® Gold Certification. The property achieved a Performance Score of 71 (out of 90) for demonstrating efficiencies in Energy, Water, Waste, Transportation, and Human Experience. Some of the property’s sustainable features include pervious pavement that allows rainwater to be absorbed directly into the ground and protects ecosystems by preventing contaminated runoff water from polluting the nearby bay, recycling and composting initiatives that divert an average of over 92% of building waste from the landfill and two high efficiency chillers that will result in an estimated savings of over 430,000 kwh per year.
