Overview Description:
Starwood is committed to doing the right thing for the environment, our guests, our meeting planners, and for the communities in which we operate. Sustainability is one of the key investments we have made at Starwood. We have created an integrated, holistic approach that carries through our hotel development, our operating principles, and our community partnerships. We are particularly excited to launch our Sustainable Meeting Practices. This program will help you meet your sustainability goals and it will help us reach ours. Thank you for your business and support which has allowed us to continue to innovate. sustainable meeting practices The SMP is made up of 20 program elements or “practices”. These practices are grouped into 5 core components: • Paperless meeting planning • Sustainable meeting services • Sustainable F&B practices • Impact Assessment Tools • Socially conscious activities (in development) The first core component is “paperless meeting planning”, which involves the use of current electronic sales tools as available to reduce the amount of paper generated throughout the meeting planning process. These tools include StarGroups, Reservation Connection, Reservation Cross Check, Online Floor plans and capacity charts, and eMenus. The second core component is “sustainable meeting services”, which encompasses eight practices that address the use of more environmentally friendly products and offerings to replace current offerings that customers may opt for to reduce the impact of their meetings. The practices include using recycled content flip charts and paper products with a minimum of 30% post-consumer recycled content; providing sustainable non-paper meeting supplies that are recycled, compostable or biodegradable; utilizing potted plants in place of fresh cut flowers or if that isn’t possible using a local, organic florist; providing recycling services in the meeting spaces; offering green printing services which means double-sided printing and recycling ink/toner cartridges; offering green transportation services such as access to public transportation or fuel-efficient vehicle options; and upon replacement of current signage, sourcing energy efficient digital LED or LCD signage. It’s important to note that the global brand teams were involved in the initiative planning so that items that overlap with current brand guidance are coordinated appropriately. For example, the use of potted plant displays in lieu of fresh flowers is being factored into the brand Botanical Style Guides. The third core component is “Sustainable F&B Practices”, which includes 8 practices designed to provide more environmentally friendly food and beverage options. The practices include providing sustainable menu options that include fair trade or organically certified products; utilizing environmentally sustainable disposable F&B packaging for box lunches; reducing the usage of individually-packaged condiments to reduce packaging waste; providing environmentally friendly alternatives for bottled water such as using an on-site water filtration system or sourcing glass or recycled content bottles; utilizing environmentally friendly chafing fuel to reduce toxins and hazardous waste; donating leftover prepared food to community-based food recovery programs where possible; and upon replacement, sourcing linenless meeting tables to reduce laundry needs. Item number 17 on this list, the composting of organic waste, is on hold as a division-wide practice because of the operational complexities that need to be worked through. There are many properties that are already utilizing composting practices, and the guidance is available on the SRC for those properties that are ready to research this option for early adoption. The fourth component is “Impact Assessment Tools.” The Meetings Impact Report is a unique initiative that will allow you to record meeting details in the SRC and generate a “report” for the meeting planner that provides the host group with information on the environmental and social impact of their meeting. It will include data on their energy and water consumption as well as additional information on how the choices they made benefit the environment. The Carbon Offset program is also still in development as we continue to look for the right partner. Some hotels may already have an offset partner that they are working with, and for those properties I ask that you please email me to let me know who you are partnering with as that will help us shape our direction as we develop this program across the division. Finally, the fifth core component is “socially conscious activity”, and this component focuses specifically on providing assistance to meeting planners who would like to organize activities for their attendees that will benefit the local community. This is another initiative that properties can currently implement locally by connecting interested meeting planners with community organizations that can accommodate volunteer groups. We are working with several options for a division-wide partnership to support this practice.

Safety & Security

Overview Description Always place your hand on the back of the door before opening the door. If it is hot, do not open the door; find an alternate route. If you enter a smoke filled area, seek another exit route if possible. If you must pass through an area congested by smoke, cover your mouth and nose with a towel or piece of clothing, dampened with water, if possible. Crawl low along the wall to the exit, using the walls and doorways as a guide in case you are unable to see due to smoke or power loss. Ensure that fire doors are not blocked open. Proceed to the designated evacuation assembly areas. Report anyone stranded to the Fire Control Room, Emergency Response Team member or Fire Department personnel. In the event you are unable to evacuate due to a blocked exit or other barrier, try to enter a guest room or other area free from fire and smoke. Immediately call Security at extension 0 and advise them of your situation and location. Once in the room, start to fill the bathtub with as much water as possible. Soak towels, sheets or other fabric in the water and place the wet fabric in the cracks between the door and the floor, frame, etc. Turn off the heat or air-conditioning unit.
