Delta Hotels and Resorts has introduced Delta Greens, a comprehensive environmental sustainability programme at its 46 properties.
Under the programme, all hotels in the chain will commit to decreasing their energy consumption, carbon emissions and water consumption by 30 per cent within five years, as well as increasing waste diversion by 25 per cent.
Across its chain, Delta’s 8,000-plus employees at its 46 properties are tasked with changing the way they work, in order to reach those goals.
Moreover, Delta will, online, track the chain’s progress against targets.
According to a company release, the energy saved, via the programme, will be enough to power 21,000 homes for one year; and the carbon dioxide reduced will be equivalent to taking 15,000 cars off the road, for one year.
