Marriott International Ahead of Sustainable Sourcing Goals for 2013

Jul 31, 2013


Marriott has reached 60 percent of its goal to spend 75 percent of its 2013 furniture, fixtures, and equipment budget with suppliers who are part of the MindClick Hospitality Index for Sustainable Sourcing (HSP Index).

“With over 30 participating suppliers representing 20 product categories ranging from bath fixtures to seating, carpets to casegoods, fabrics to mattresses, lighting to mirrors, and more, we are very pleased with the support we’re seeing from of our suppliers,” says Dave Lippert, vice president of architecture and construction procurement for Marriott International. “Sustainability is of high importance to Marriott and to our guests and our communities, and we can make a significant impact by furnishing and supplying hotels in ways that are better for the guest, and better for the environment."

In addition to sustainability reporting, Marriott intends to use MindClick’s Index to identify sustainable product solutions for use in future hotel design efforts. “As we look to meet the millennial traveler’s focus on meaningful sustainability efforts, having a resource for sustainable FF&E sourcing will help us with our future design needs,” says Deborah Huguely, vice president of global product development.

MindClick’s HSP Index is used by global brands to source from suppliers whose operating practices, products, and services help improve their customers’ own sustainability performance. As a result of MindClick’s Index, more than 25 percent of evaluated suppliers have set reduction and/or conservation targets.
