Hilton Worldwide Awards Travel With Purpose® Action Grant To Hilton Warwick/Stratford Upon Avon
$1,000 Grant to Support Living Sustainability Courtyard Project
July 01, 2015
WARWICK/STRATFORD UPON AVON, UK - Hilton Worldwide (NYSE: HLT) has awarded Hilton Warwick/Stratford Upon Avon a $1,000 Travel with Purpose® Action Grant. The funds will be used to revamp a small courtyard where the hotel plans to grow its own fruit and vegetables and plant a herb garden. The hotel's Blue Energy team will be involved in maintaining this area year-round. This project aims to sustainably impact the cost of the hotel's waste whilst also positively motivating team members. Guests will be informed of this initiative via menus and social media channels.
The Travel with Purpose Action Grant programme, launched in 2013, is part of Hilton Worldwide's portfolio of hotels' global effort to support the development of local solutions and strengthen the quality of life in the communities Hilton Worldwide serves. More than $150,000 was awarded this year to 62 properties throughout the Hilton Worldwide portfolio and community organizations around the world as part of the Travel with Purpose Action Grant programme.
This grant provides funds directly to the Hilton Warwick/Stratford Upon Avon for an on-site project that supports Living Sustainably, one of Hilton Worldwide's four corporate responsibility focus areas. Seven of this year's 62 Action Grant recipients are completing creative on-site Living Sustainably projects that empower properties to meet shared business and social objectives while also making a conscious effort at improving the environment.
