At Hilton Hotels Corporation, protecting the Environment is a top priority. Responsible environmental activity is good for both our business and the community. Hilton has developed a comprehensive company-wide policy to promote business practices that help preserve the environment. We provide guidelines for all of our facilities, and our goals are to “Reduce – Reuse – Recycle” as much as we can.
The Hilton Atlanta is committed to promoting the practice of sustainable hospitality through energy and water conservation, waste reduction and recycling. We will strive to maintain an exceptional guest experience while incorporating environmentally conscious practices into our operations. We will seek to engage our team members and our guests to “think green” through ongoing education and awareness programs.
