Wyndham Worldwide Listed on Dow Jones Sustainability Index

Oct 15, 2013

For the first time, Wyndham Worldwide has been listed on the Dow Jones Sustainability North America Index. It is one of three hospitality companies, and the only one in North America, recognized in the hotels, resorts, and cruise line segment.

The S&P Dow Jones Indices identify leaders in the areas of sustainable economic, environmental, and social performance. Wyndham Worldwide was recognized in particular for its risk and crisis management, human capital development, and environmental programs.

“Our inclusion on the Dow Jones Sustainability Index is a great reflection of our commitment to our core values, which enable us to consistently deliver great results,” says Stephen P. Holmes, chairman and CEO, Wyndham Worldwide. “We are proud to be included on such an esteemed index, but more importantly, excited that we continue to see the impact our sustainability and corporate social responsibility efforts have in our operating performance and value created for our shareholders.”

Supporting environmental initiatives for the past six years, Wyndham Worldwide’s sustainability practices are created and driven by the company’s Wyndham Green program. Wyndham Green aims to drive leadership in the industry, encourage engagement among the company’s key stakeholders, and turn innovative ideas into results. This focus enabled Wyndham to reduce its operationally controlled asset water usage globally by 5 percent per square foot, reduce its carbon emissions by nearly 12 percent per square foot in 2012, and increase its sustainable suppliers to 25 percent in 2012.
