Publisher Description

Case study: How Hilton is developing programs and initiatives that support business objectives while managing social and environmental impacts in its supply chain


As a global hotel company purchasing food and beverage, linens, amenities, beds and energy, sourcing is a complex and often decentralized matter for Hilton, with its suppliers extending beyond 97 countries, spanning multiple industries and legal contexts.


Hilton’s portfolio of twelve world-class global brands includes more than 4,500 managed, franchised, owned and leased hotels and timeshare properties, with over 745,000 rooms in almost 100 countries and territories. This is why Hilton is not only committed to its own responsible business practices but also strives to ensure that its suppliers do the same. In order to develop programs and initiatives that support business objectives while managing social and environmental impacts in its supply chain, Hilton took action to:

• develop a cross-functional advisory group

• foster supplier diversity

• introduce local sourcing programs

• support the care and welfare of the animals in Hilton’s extended global supply chain

• promote responsible meetings using locally sourced food items and

• work with international organizations to manage the social and environmental impacts in its supply chain
