MindClick Launches Sustainability Education Series for Marriott Designer Firms

In an effort to further their commitment to leading the industry in social and environmental responsibility, Marriott International, in partnership with MindClick, is offering a Healthier Design Education Series for over 60 of their design partners throughout North America.

For over six years, the Global Design and Procurement team at Marriott International has partnered with MindClick, an expert in supply chain sustainability solutions, to assess the performance of furniture, fixture and equipment vendors and the products they supply. The Marriott Supplier Sustainability Assessment Program (MSAP) is an annual rating of suppliers and their products from material choices through end of use.

The design series is an industry-wide design firm education program in support of Healthier Design. We are educating Marriott designers throughout the industry in the ways leading suppliers are making material selections, adopting production practices, choosing packaging options, and taking back used products to support healthier hotels and communities.

Marriott has demonstrated a long-standing commitment to reducing their environmental footprint and creating healthy  environments for their employees and guests.

Some of our participating suppliers:

Shaw Inc.

Interface

MTS Seating

Pkaufmann

Kimball Hospitality

MDC Wallcoverings

Southern Aluminum

LacquerCraft Hospitality

For questions on how to participate in the Design Education Series, as either a supplier to Marriott or as a design firm, please contact Amanda Fefferman at afefferman @ mcgindex (dot) com or Lara Shortall at lshortall @ mcgindex (dot) com.

MindClick Featured in Marriott’s 2014 Annual Sustainability Report

As Marriott continues to identify ways that help minimize their global environmental footprint, they’ve taken on the challenge of addressing sustainability beyond the four walls of their hotels. In 2012, Marriott committed to spend 75 percent of its 2013 furniture, fixtures and equipment budget for the Americas with suppliers who are part of the MindClick Hospitality Index for Sustainable Sourcing (HSP Index). By year-end 2013, we had reached that goal and are exploring the expansion of the Index to the Operating Supplies and Equipment supply chain.

While Marriott’s focus was improving the sustainability of the products they purchase, as well as protecting the health and well-being of the people and communities that produce those products, it turns out that their guests were quick to express their appreciation for such actions. Enjoy real money casino mapleleafonlinecasino.com/real-money/ and win real big money! Guest surveys showed 1.5 times the intent to return and two times the intent to refer the property to others among those aware of the sustainability efforts.

As Marriott enhances their strategy over the next few years, MindClick will continue to provide the data and guidance to help drive impactful results throughout Marriott’s global supply chain.
