We want to be better stewards of the earth, and invest in brands and practices that push this commitment forward.
From timber construction, to regenerative agriculture, to integrated technologies that mitigate our ecological impact, we are constantly looking for ways to implement and improve. It’s one of the most important — and exciting — parts of our work, and we embrace new ideas and methods that protect the earth we’re on.
But we know that hospitality has a long way to go. That’s why we’re committed to leadership and transparency, sharing what we’ve learned as a resource for our industry, and will be forming an Environmental Board to push the needle forward.
From sustainable fishing and agricultural practices, to regenerative and organic farming, we aim to be lighter on the land when we source our food, looking to not only reduce our carbon footprint, but to also improve our environment where we can. This vision extends to how we build our properties, and our goal is to establish ambitious initiatives from alternative energy to timber construction as we consistently review and update our policies and practices.
The health and wellbeing of our team members can only thrive in an inclusive, accessible, and equitable environment, with living wages, benefits, and mentorships supporting our team and building stronger businesses and communities. We’re committed to finding measurable, impactful ways that continue to improve the safe and diverse spaces that allow our teams and customers to be themselves and flourish with the brand.
We foster a culture of creativity, integrity, and optimism to ensure that our vision for a more sustainable and equitable future drives our purpose. Our programs are continuously being refined to ensure systematic investment in the communities where we do business and where our customers and employees live.
