Fairmont Hotels & Resorts achieves global Co2 reduction target

20150219-savoy_hotel_pic01_feb19-225x300(eglobaltravelmedia) Fairmont Hotels & Resorts today announced that it has achieved World Wildlife Fund (WWF) Climate Savers Program targets, reducing its operational CO2 emissions by 20 per cent below 2006 levels.

In doing so, the luxury hotel brand known for its industry leading sustainability programming becomes the first hotel brand and Canadian-based company to meet this ambitious environmental goal.

WWF’s Climate Savers Program was designed to inspire companies to change their thinking about climate solutions, while also encouraging them to transform themselves into low-carbon leaders. This leaves member companies better placed to avoid carbon-related risks while realizing opportunities within their long-term business strategies. Fairmont joined Fortune 500 companies and other top businesses like The Coca-Cola Company, Johnson & Johnson, and Nike to develop practical, cost-effective strategies that reduce emissions of CO2 and achieve energy efficiency solutions.
