Preserving Natural Resources
Many Hyatt hotels contribute to protecting their surrounding natural environments. Unique experiences are available for guests to get involved in and learn about the local environment, such as:
- Hyatt Regency Maui Resort and Spa (Hawaii) has installed stormwater management features and native vegetation to minimize stormwater flow to the ocean and improve reef quality. The property also offers opportunities for its colleagues and guests to help protect the Pu’u Kukui Watershed Preserve, a native rainforest and water source for the island.
- Guests at Wild Dunes Resort (South Carolina) can assist in the rebuilding of oyster reefs by joining Oyster Rebuilding Clinics.
- Beehives at a variety of hotels – including Miraval Austin Resort and Spa (Texas), Hyatt Regency Toronto (Canada), Hyatt Regency Sacramento (California), Hyatt Place Ottawa – West (Canada) and Hyatt Regency Amsterdam (Netherlands) – can help contribute to pollination of plants in urban areas. And guests can experience the beauty of bees at Alila Ventana Big Sur’s “Bees & Big Sur” experience.
- Secrets Bahia Mita Surf & Spa Resort (Mexico) and Dreams Bahia Mita Surf & Spa Resort (Mexico) orchestrated large-scale plant nurseries to grow thousands of native plants and trees and established dedicated feeding and hydration zones for wildlife in the surrounding Nayarit area.
Additionally, Hyatt leverages a variety of mapping tools, including the World Resource Institute (WRI) Aqueduct Water Risk Atlas and the World Database on Protected Areas (WDPA) to help evaluate risk areas and inform strategy development.
As part of Hyatt’s efforts to engage customers in sustainability and offset our emissions, the company purchased carbon credits that fund sustainable forest management and support the socio-economic needs of families living in Brazil’s Amazonian communities. The process of regeneration increases the amount of carbon sequestered in the forest, which will avoid roughly 9,582,742 tons of CO2e over the 40-year project period.
