Host Ranks as One of Newsweek’s Greenest Big Companies in America


Host Hotels & Resorts® was listed in 71st place and ranked within the top three companies in the REIT sector in the 2016 Newsweek Green Rankings. Each year, Newsweek evaluates the environmental performance of the 500 largest publicly-traded companies in the U.S. and globally.


“We are pleased to receive this high of a ranking and believe it is a true reflection of our commitment to Corporate Responsibility and reducing our environmental impact,” said Joanne Hamilton, Executive Vice President and Corporate Responsibility champion at Host.


Through its Corporate Responsibility program, Host is committed to enhancing the value and profitability of its owned hotels through sustainable business practices. Host focuses on improving its environmental footprint and measuring progress toward its environmental goals for greenhouse gas emissions, water consumption and waste diversion.


In 2015, Host received top recognition as a World Leader for corporate action on climate change and achieved a position on the 2015 Climate "A" List and Climate Disclosure Leadership Index (CDLI) by CDP; achieved Global Sector Leader, Regional Sector Leader and Green Star status in the 2015 Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmark (GRESB) survey; and received the 2015 Lodging/Resorts Leader in the Light award from the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (NAREIT), the highest achievement for all Lodging/Resorts REITs.
