WWF has named Fairmont Hotels the newest member of its Climate Savers Program. In recognition of this partnership, Fairmont has agreed to a brand-wide carbon-emissions reduction plan and has pledged to reduce operational CO2 emissions from its existing portfolio of hotels by 20-per-cent below 2006 levels by 2013, while also ensuring that new Fairmont properties strive to reduce CO2 emissions through the implementation of the brand’s new Energy and Carbon Management programme.

In addition, Fairmont will finalize a green procurement policy and supplier code of conduct by the end of 2009 and educate and encourage its top suppliers (representing approximately 25 per cent of the supply chain) to provide products in accordance with the green procurement policy and supplier code of conduct by the end of 2010.
