Hyatt to Reduce Single-Use Plastics

Hyatt Hotels Corporation announced Hyatt hotels around the world plan to eliminate single-use plastic straws and drink picks.

After September 01 straws and picks will be available on request only, and eco-friendly alternatives will be provided where available.

This move away from single-use plastics builds on efforts already underway across Hyatt’s global portfolio, including to minimise and divert food waste, source responsibly, and reduce water and energy consumption.

Since launching its 2020 Environmental Sustainability Vision in 2014, Hyatt has made significant strides toward its goals, integrating sustainability guidelines into purchasing criteria and engaging suppliers around sustainable practices.

Examples include, nearly 100 percent of Hyatt’s Avendra suppliers and distributors now having sustainability policies in place and Hyatt surpassing its goal to reduce greenhouse gas emissions per square meter by 25 percent in all regions when compared to 2006.
