“Through this comprehensive upgrade of LightStay, we are able to manage our impact globally and provide customized solutions for our hotels to improve and optimize performance,” says Maxime Verstraete, VP of Sustainability, Hilton Worldwide. “With more than 4,440 hotels, our ability to make a positive impact on the environment, while managing our business, is massive.”
