Putting Guests at the Center of Sustainability Challenge

With 56 green rooms now fitted with their own meters, guests at The Westin Singapore can now monitor and track their energy consumption via the in-room IPTV system. And for every guest who achieves a green rank (ie. 20% lower than the average energy consumption level for that room category) throughout their stay, the hotel will donate $1 to Unicef. This innovative Green Rooms initiative takes The Westin Singapore’s commitment to its energy conservation one step further by putting the guest at the center of the sustainability challenge.

Check In for Babies

By the virtue of the fact that Starwood enjoys a presence in hundreds of cities around the globe, there are huge opportunities for us to touch and uplift many communities. Starwood Hotels & Resorts in Hawaii (The Royal Hawaiian, a Luxury Collection Resort, Moana Surfrider, A Westin Resort & Spa, Sheraton Waikiki and Sheraton Maui), for instance, recently launched a "Check in for Babies" initiative in an effort to raise awareness of the struggles and needs of families with newborns warded in the intensive care units of hospitals.

What is Global Citizenship In Starwood?

“At Starwood, we have a shared belief that people want a better way to experience the world. We view our work in sustainability and social responsibility as our commitment to making sure there is a better world to experience." 
-          Frits van Paasschen, Starwood CEO

Every Reason to Smile

Recently, W Guangzhou conceived a “Smile Ambassador” program, an activity aimed at uncovering our talents’ beautiful smiles during their daily work.
 
For an entire month, we went in search of happy smiles that expressed a variety of feelings, ranging from warmth, delight, pleasure, gaiety, elation and good humor. These beautiful moments were captured in photo prints and displayed near associate entrance to guest areas so that each time associates enter into the frontline, they will take their best smiles with them to serve our guests.
