How is it Ecofriendly?
The Hyatt Regency Waikiki Beach Resort and Spa is a member of the Hyatt family of hotels, making it a key part of Hyatt’s efforts to be a responsible corporate partner in those diverse communities its properties serve throughout the world. These efforts include supporting the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals; striving to use only responsibly sourced foods, goods, and products; and developing a comprehensive set of sustainability goals. These goals, established in 2014, were part of an initiative that saw Hyatt launch its Hyatt Thrive program, intended to foster a workplace culture of greater corporate responsibility undergirded by a concrete set of environmentally friendly targets.
As forward-thinking as such plans are, Hyatt—with its member facilities like the Hyatt Regency Waikiki Beach Resort and Spa—has already made significant gains in promoting sustainability. The majority of these gains are the results of various proactive practices intended to reduce the hotel’s environmental footprint. Since 2006, Hyatt has purchased only the most energy-efficient appliances for its properties, while also making a point of “turning off” unoccupied rooms; the results has been a nearly 20% reduction in energy consumption over the past decade. Likewise, throughout the past decade they have instituted policies allowing guests to opt-out of daily housekeeping services—which cuts down the amount of water used in the laundry process—and installed exclusively low-flow bathroom fixtures; through these measures Hyatt has achieved an approximately 20% reduction of water consumption since 2006. In the same time, Hyatt Regency Waikiki Beach Resort and Spa has also seen a reduction in greenhouse-gas emissions equal to a nearly 25% decline.
