Hilton KHBTCC’s Team Members Lead Initiatives to Save Over Half A Million Litres of Water Every Year

King Hussein Bin Talal Convention Centre managed by Hilton (Hilton KHBTCC) recently celebrated the successful completion of its “Save Every Drop” campaign that was launched during the third quarter of the year with the purpose of raising awareness about the importance of saving water to our planet.
 
 
A strong believer and a proud advocate of sustainability, Hilton Worldwide sees opportunity to leverage its resources and engage team members to enable sustainable growth for the industry. As part of Hilton Worldwide’s commitment to  HYPERLINK \"http://cr.hiltonworldwide.com/sustainability/\" Living Sustainably, one of the four pillars of the company’s global corporate responsibility strategy, Travel with Purpose®, Hilton Worldwide empowers team members to make changes both in their hotels and homes to improve across four issues: energy efficiency, waste reduction, water efficiency and chemical use with targets set and performance measured for energy and water efficiency. 
 
 
This quarter, team members of Hilton KHBTCC joined their colleagues in over 700 properties around the world and dedicated their efforts to promote water efficiency. The team worked together on three fronts: raising awareness, research and implementation. 
 
 
Heads of departments dedicated time and effort to hold training sessions about water encouraging team members to adopt positive water saving habits that can be implemented as part of their daily routines. Other team members worked hand in hand with the engineering department to install water-saving gadgets in toilets and on faucets, while others promoted the importance of reusing water through collecting excess water from air conditioning units to be used for cleaning purposes. 
 
 
“The team has done a great effort throughout the course of the campaign reflecting their learnings of the training sessions that they attended. To support these sustainability goals, LightStay™ the company’s proprietary system is used to measure, analyze and report on sustainability data, and after evaluating the impact of all the projects that have been implemented, we will proudly be saving over half a million liters of water and reusing an average of 30,000 liters of water every year”. Garabid Bedivian, director of engineering at Hilton KHBTCC said; “These are amazing numbers and we are proud of our team members who took this initiative and made these results possible”.
 
 
Team members creatively celebrated the successful results of the campaign by pledging to save water, use it wisely and promote the cause through forming a human water drop with the participation of 160 employees.
