Hilton Worldwide has saved nearly a quarter of a billion dollars from energy efficiency projects over the past 4 years, according to its 2012-2013 corporate responsibility report.

Since 2009, the hospitality company reduced energy use by 12.2 percent and carbon output by 12.8 percent. In the U.S., Hilton purchased more than 450 million kilowatt hours of renewable power through December 31, 2012 — enough to meet 94 percent of the annual electricity use in its owned hotels in the United States.

The hospitality company achieved this largely due to “Living Sustainably,” a business imperative and a cornerstone of its Travel with Purpose program, which sets sustainability goals to reduce energy consumption, carbon and waste output by 20 percent, and water use by 10 percent, by the end of 2013. To help carry out the plan, Hilton created LightStay, a proprietary system to measure, analyze and report on sustainability data. In 2010, LightStay helped the company save more than $74 million across its portfolio of 10 hotel brands.
