Hilton Effect affects the world positively

Hilton affects many ways both locally and globally. Hilton Effect is what refers to the company’s transformative effect on the travel experience of more than three billion customers, the career opportunities of nearly ten million staff members, and the role of hotels in economic development for communities in 113 countries.

Launched in 2019 as part of Hilton’s 100th anniversary celebration, the Hilton Global Foundation (formerly known as the Hilton Effect Foundation) works to create a better world to travel, ensure a sustainable future for generations to come, and supercharge Hilton’s progress towards its 2030 Travel with Purpose Goals.

The primary objective of the Foundation is to create positive impact in our communities and to further Hilton’s overall Environmental and Social Impact strategy: Travel with Purpose.

Travel with Purpose

With Travel with Purpose, Hilton promotes sustainable tourism worldwide. Hilton is committed to doubling investments in social impact and halving its environmental impact by 2030. Our environmental and social impacts are regularly monitored in every Hilton hotel using the LightStay management system.

Sustainability is strongly adapted into our operations

Joutsenmerkki – Nordic Swan Ecolabel

Scandic Hotels Oy operates Hilton hotels in Finland. Scandic has chosen Nordic Swan Ecolabel as an environmental program because its strict criteria challenge comprehensive environmental work. Nordic Swan Ecolabel guarantees that the hotel offers e.g. plenty of vegetarian food and organic products, prefers eco-labelled products and services, keeps energy and water consumption low and sorts and reduces the amount of waste. Scandic’s goal is to apply for Nordic Swan Ecolabel for all its hotels by the end of 2023. Hilton Helsinki Airport and Hilton Helsinki Strand have proudly carried the Nordic Swan Ecolabel sign for many years as proof of their actions for responsible tourism.

Sustainable Travel Finland programme

Sustainable Travel Finland (STF) programme provides companies and destinations with a concrete toolkit for developing sustainable tourism, which makes it easier to systematically adopt sustainable measures and choices into the everyday life of a region or company.
