Hilton Worldwide has released its 2013-2014 corporate responsibility report. The report is Hilton Worldwide’s third corporate responsibility report, and its first since returning to public markets following a record-breaking initial public offering (IPO) in December 2013. The report highlights efforts, achievements and priorities across the four focus areas of Hilton Worldwide’s corporate responsibility strategy, Travel with Purpose: creating opportunities, strengthening communities, celebrating cultures and living sustainably.

“2013 was a year of tremendous progress for Hilton Worldwide. As we build on this momentum, we are mindful of the need to achieve this growth in a responsible and sustainable manner,” said Christopher J. Nassetta, president and CEO, Hilton Worldwide. “Travel with Purpose serves as the guide for growing our company in a way that benefits our business as well as the communities where we live, work and travel. I am proud of the progress we have made and will continue to make as we look to achieve our goals in the future.”

Key achievements highlighted in the report include:

- Reducing energy use by 13.6 percent, carbon output by 20.2 percent, waste output by 26.8 percent and water use by 13.1 percent since 2009
- Achieving ISO 50001 energy management system certification across our entire portfolio of hotels, making Hilton Worldwide one of the first multinational organizations to certify its entire system globally

- Hosting more than 600 career awareness events as part of Careers@HiltonLive, reaching more than 73,000 young people around the world
- Hiring more than 2,000 United States veterans and their families since launching Operation: Opportunity in 2013

“Responsibility and sustainability are key parts of our long-term business strategy. We are proud of the work our Team Members and franchise partners around the world do to drive local solutions that result in new opportunities for youth, the development of responsible supply chains, conservation of scarce natural resources, as well as greater cultural understanding and support for human rights,” said Jennifer Silberman, vice president of corporate responsibility, Hilton Worldwide.
