A hotel for the modern explorer desiring a ‘cosmopolitan’ feel arrived in the area a few years ago: Hyatt Centric. The Hyatt Corporation is dedicated to hospitality and community, but they are also dedicated to responsible business practices, socially and environmentally. Our local Hyatt Centric joined the Green Business program a few years ago and they are exemplary with commitment!
Their initial goals upon joining involved making sure all staff and guests were trained on recycling – what goes where. They purchased a cardboard baler, glass crusher, recycle bins and improved signage. Additionally, they enhanced energy efficiency with equipment and lights and water efficiency with their sprinklers and pool. Upcoming projects involve expansion of motion and light sensors and installing ceiling fans and rain collection barrels.
The progressive hotel recycles everything possible, composts, has low-flush toilets and showers, and a high-tech utility monitoring system. Their plants are native, their pool cover is liquid to help with evaporation and they even sustain an employee vegetable garden. Best yet, they recycle in every guest room!
The Hyatt Corporation is working hard to set an example with responsible sourcing for their buildings and products, including food and beverages. They have a distinctive approach understanding that their actions, including limited impact on the environment, can create long-term value for communities. Environmental responsibility is a core pillar of their corporate responsibility platform and Recycle Utah is thrilled to have them in the program as a model to others in the industry.
