Marriott International announces water conservation results on World Water Day

European managed hotels saved 20.3 million gallons of water in 2014 through a number of initiatives ranging from pump audits to high efficiency dishwashers and water efficient shower heads.

On the eve of World Water Day, Marriott International has announced that global water intensity in its worldwide managed hotels decreased in 2014 by 5.3 percent over 2013, and 16.3 percent compared to 2007.

Marriott is committed to working with its properties to identify projects and procedures to aid in water conservation.

In 2007, the company set  2020 goals to reduce water consumption by 20 percent, as well as energy reductions of 20 percent across its managed portfolio of hotels worldwide, as part of a broader global sustainability strategy.

"We are extremely pleased with our 2014 water intensity results. Water conservation is an area of sustainability where hotels, associates, and guests can directly aid the environment by reducing their water usage, whether it is through the fitting of low flow showers and toilets in guest bathrooms, irrigation systems installed on properties, or guests choosing to not have towels changed every day,” said Denise Naguib, VP, sustainability and supplier diversity, Marriott International.

European managed hotels saved 20.3 million gallons of water in 2014 through a number of initiatives ranging from pump audits to high efficiency dishwashers and water efficient shower heads.

Marriott International is a leading global lodging company based in Bethesda, Maryland, USA, with more than 4,100 properties in 79 countries and territories and reported revenues of nearly $14 billion in fiscal year 2014. 

The company operates and franchises hotels and licenses vacation ownership resorts under 18 brands.
