We Are HOSPITALITYTravel with Purpose

Travel with Purpose at Hilton

Travel with Purpose allows us to take advantage of our global footprint and scale to provide opportunities, strengthen communities and preserve the environment.


As one of the world’s largest industries, travel and tourism plays an important role in helping the international community reach the Global Sustainable Development Goals set out by the United Nations in 2015. Hilton has properties in over 100 countries, employs more than 360,000 Team Members*, and is part of the booming travel and tourism industry that contributes 1 in 10 jobs to the worldwide economy. We harness our global hospitality mission to help drive local solutions in the communities where we operate. Learn more about how we bring Travel with Purpose to life around the world.

The most important driver of our success is our people. We strive to create a diverse, inclusive culture and world-class learning and development programs to enable our people to reach their goals. We actively work to empower youth through our Open Doors Commitment.

 Corporate Responsibility comes with doing programs such as helping the community out, making people aware of other people’s circumstances. It’s also just being grateful for what you have and how you can better the world.

Preserving Environments
5,000+ learning labs

We have nearly 5,000 hotels tracking their environmental footprint — from energy use, water use and waste to setting goals and sharing best practices — through LightStay, our innovative measurement platform implemented across all Hilton properties. We mobilize Hilton Team Members to build a more integrated sustainability culture across Hilton, encouraging environmentally smart choices both inside and outside of work.

 Our footprint could be huge throughout the world... if you think of the linen, lights, water we need to operate... but we have really taken a stand and put measures in place to reduce our global impact.
