Sustainability & Social Impact

Plan events that drive positive change.

Connect Responsibly

Marriott International is committed to integrating sustainability and social impact into our entire business strategy, including meetings and events. Our platform, Serve 360: Doing Good in Every Direction, guides our company’s efforts toward our 2025 Sustainability and Social Impact Goals. With our size and global scale, we are well positioned to be part of the solution. Join us in transforming meetings and events into opportunities to drive positive change. 


Across our portfolio of hotel brands, we minimize our environmental footprint by managing our energy and water use, reducing our waste and carbon emissions and increasing the use of renewable energy. We strive to embed sustainable practices in our meeting and event operations, from waste reduction to responsible sourcing, to ensure everyone can connect responsibly. We know every action counts, so we also focus on the small details of events, like utilizing water receptacles instead of plastic bottles, and recycled products for event accessories. By implementing best practices, we can help contribute to your sustainability goals. For more tips, check out our overview on how to hit your environmental goals and make your meeting more sustainable.

Social Impact

Travel is one of the most powerful tools for promoting inclusivity and cultural understanding. We believe that putting people first and embracing our differences will lead to more inclusive and meaningful meetings and events. We’re dedicated to creating safe spaces for everyone – empowering through opportunity and advancing human rights by investing in and collaborating with leading nonprofits. Marriott Bonvoy members can join in our efforts by donating points to help others.
