Helping Hilton minimise its environmental footprint



With more than 5,700 properties in 113 countries, Hilton is a global leader in hospitality and sustainability. In 2018, Hilton launched its new Travel with Purpose 2030 targets aimed at driving positive social and environmental change on a global scale.

The programme seeks to advance sustainable travel globally, and contribute in a meaningful way to the UN Sustainable Development Goals. By 2030, Hilton plans to cut its environmental footprint in half by:

  • Reducing water use intensity by 50 percent
  • Reducing waste by 50 percent
  • Reducing carbon emissions by 61 percent


Ecolab has collaborated with Hilton properties around the world in many different capacities to jointly drive sustainable savings while improving performance and ensuring guest satisfaction.

Hilton also has realized significant sustainability savings through global deployment of Ecolab technologies, including:

  • SMARTPOWER™, a warewashing programme that combines innovative chemistry with actionable insights and personalized service to deliver clean wares while reducing water, energy and costs
  • Aquanomic™ Low-Temp Laundry Programme, which delivers premium results at a lower wash temperature, leaving textiles white and bright while extending linen life and saving water and energy.

These programmes, combined with other solutions, help Hilton drive progress toward achieving its ambitious Travel with Purpose 2030 sustainability goals.
