Wyndham Axes Carbon Footprint in 2012

- Wednesday, October 02, 2013

Wyndham Worldwide, one of the world's largest hospitality companies, announced that in 2012 it achieved a nearly 12 percent reduction in carbon emissions per square foot of its operationally controlled assets versus its carbon footprint in 2011.

The company, which is working toward a goal to reduce its carbon emissions by 16 percent by 2016 and by 20 percent by 2020, announced this latest accomplishment in its third annual Sustainability Report.

"Advancing sustainability best practices remains among our top priorities not only because it's good for the environment, but because it's also good for business," said Stephen P. Holmes, chairman and CEO, Wyndham Worldwide. "This latest milestone of meaningfully reducing our carbon footprint is the result of collaboration across our organization, including our associates, suppliers, customers and business partners.”

As part of their recycling endeavor to aid in their carbon footprint reduction, Wyndham recently purchased the Fibrex Group’s latest product, the Mobius Flex dual stream recycling containers for their Mount Laurel, New Jersey location. The Mobius Flex is a high-end design receptacle at an affordable price. With its two generously sized compartments featuring molded drop-in openings for collecting bottles & cans, paper products, organics and/or trash, it is perfect for use in high profile settings. Each compartment holds up to 25 gallons and is fitted with a rigid plastic liner. Conserve landfill space, reduce your carbon footprint and go green with Fibrex.
