Hyatt is counting significant reductions in energy use and waste in its 2011 Corporate Responsibility Report. Key figures include a 9 percent drop in energy consumption, a 7 percent drop in water use, and a 3 percent reduction in waste sent to landfills. The company also reports Green Teams are active at 92 percent of its hotels and the training of 15,000 associates to identify ways to reduce waste and conserve water and energy.

The North Face has moved into a new headquarters that includes sustainability features that match the company’s dedication to the environment. The campus is built to LEED Gold standards, and generates 100 percent of its anticipated electricity through a combination of photovoltaic solar panels and wind turbines. An evaporative cooling system circulates 100 percent fresh air without the use of emission-causing coolants.

The fourth annual Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer from Montreal to Quebec has raised $7 million for cancer research benefitting the Jewish General Hospital. Vigilant Global employees were among the 2,000 riders and contributed $23,000, collected from family, friends, and corporate sponsors.
