Successful energy management programs empower peers to conserve energy. That’s why Prism has been working with the Hyatt Regency Hotel, as a part of BC Hydro’s Workplace Conservation Awareness program, to help envision and execute an engagement strategy that encourages hotel staff to integrate energy conservation practices into their work.
Hyatt Regency Vancouver’s Thrive Team is led by a group of dedicated staff, who help the hotel implement the company’s Global Corporate Responsibility Program, Hyatt Thrive. This month, Prism worked with the Thrive team of volunteers to organize an onsite Eco-Fair that featured interactive displays on workplace sustainability habits, lighting, recycling, and energy conservation. Over 120 staff from every department attended the event, including staff from housekeeping, banquets, engineering, guest services and management. 70 people signed the pledge to take action on sustainability initiatives.
Over the next few months, the team at Hyatt will be building on the conservation messages at the Eco-Fair and focusing in on key campaigns to help conserve energy, including a Revolving Door Campaign and an energy conservation ideas contest.
