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.
