Each year, five million plastic tubes and 20 million plastic bottles will be replaced in hotels in Europe, Africa and the Middle East. This program will reduce the environmental impact of the Hilton chain and increase the hotel’s socially significant investment by 2030. This will enable Hilton to become the first major hotel company to introduce science-based goals to reduce its carbon footprint. The international operator will also stop throwing hotel soap into the landfill.
The replacement plastic will be paper or biodegradable dishes.
The company will no longer use plastic bottles at business meetings and events in the EMEA region as part of the Meet the Goal global program.
By 2030, the international network intends to reduce carbon emissions by 61%, reduce water consumption and waste, expand the existing soap recycling program in all hotels and eliminate the arrival of soap waste in landfills .
