Meet with Purpose

More than a century ago, Conrad Hilton greeted hotel guests with an inspiring welcome reflective of his philosophy: “It has been, and continues to be, our responsibility to fill the earth with the light and warmth of hospitality.” Today, we have an incredible opportunity to make a difference in the communities where we live, work, and travel – which is why Hilton has committed to paving the way to a net zero future and enhancing our social impact. We recognize our obligation to protect the planet and preserve our beautiful destinations for our guests of tomorrow and generations to come.

Resolve to Meet with Purpose

The Meet with Purpose program was launched to help clients create meaningful change in both the attendee experience and within the communities they visit. Inspired by the connections we make through global travel, Hilton practices hospitality in more sustainable and impactful ways than ever before. Our Meet with Purpose offerings allow clients to:

Track our environmental progress

LightStay is Hilton’s award-winning and proprietary program that allows every hotel to measure and manage their carbon, waste, water, energy, and other environmental performance factors. LightStay reporting offers a snapshot of Hilton’s environmental and social impact globally at both the property level and company-wide.

Hilton has been named a Global Industry Leader on the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices for five consecutive years, and we are the only global hospitality brand featured on the 100 Best Corporate Citizens list, ranked in both 2020 and 2021.

Measure and manage your impact

Our LightStay Meeting Impact Calculator report generates a customized estimate of your event’s environmental impact, using the hotel’s consumption data to project the total carbon emissions, energy use, water, and waste for your event.

The customized forecast is created pre-event and provides you with suggestions to reduce your event’s projected carbon footprint. The post-event report provides an itemized measurement of the event’s overall impact.
