First Results of Wyndham’s Energy Reduction Program

News According to the latest report of Wyndham Worldwide, the company has achieved the reduction of energy use of 8%. The hotelier started the program approximately one year ago.

The company’s desire to reduce the use of energy in its hotels aligns with the US government program, according to which businesses must decrease the energy intensity by 20% to 2020. However, Wyndham has gone even further – the company wants to reduce its carbon emissions by 16% by 2017 as well.

The company described ways, using which it managed to reach the reduction of energy. First, it added Wyndham Green Toolbox to its properties. That is special eco-software that measures environmental impact of hotels. The next step concerned certifying the company’s hotels. More properties received environmental certificates. Some hotels were even equipped with electric vehicle charging stations.

Hotel rooms have also been modernized in many hotels, and old materials were replaced with new eco-friendly ones. Room cleaning was changed as now hotel rooms are cleaned with eco-friendly supplies. Of course, no energy reduction is possible without efficient lighting system. Wyndham has switched to Energy Star lighting system with CFLs.

In the report the hotel company mentions that not only this way they can save on energy bills, but also improve their eco-friendly efforts, which are one of Wyndham’s top priorities.
