PARSIPPANY-TROY HILLS, N.J. — Wyndham Worldwide recently released its 2016 Corporate Social Responsibility Report (CSR) — which reflects the company’s aspirations to care for people, preserve the planet and provide places to stay that are socially, environmentally and economically responsible.
“Since our launch in 2006, we have been guided by our core values, consistently aligning our business and financial performance with the responsible way we operate to drive value for those around us,” says Stephen P. Holmes, chairman and CEO, Wyndham Worldwide. “We make every decision based on these principles, continually striving to do what’s right — not just what’s expected.”
The 2016 CSR — prepared in accordance with the Global Reporting Initiative and aligned with the UN Sustainable Development Goals framework — highlights Wyndham’s 2015 to 2016 accomplishments in the following areas: philanthropy, environmental sustainability, human rights and ethics, diversity and inclusion and social wellness.
In the last year, Wyndham reported a 22-per-cent reduction in carbon emissions, 18-per-cent reduction in water consumption, the relaunching of the Wyndham Worldwide Charitable Foundation and a 16.2-per-cent diverse spend rate. Furthermore, the company was named the leader in environmental, social and governance strategies in North America by the Dow Jones Sustainability Index for the fourth consecutive year.
“We continue to provide leadership and improve the shared value of CSR at Wyndham Worldwide,” says Faith Taylor, SVP of CSR, Wyndham Worldwide. “We’re constantly challenging our thinking of what success looks like in delivering great experiences for our customers, results for our shareholders and service to the world around us.”
