Marriott International Reaches Key Milestone In Greening Its Global Supply Chain With MindClick Global

SAN FRANCISCO, July 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- MindClick Global, a leader in supply chain sustainability performance and sourcing solutions, today announced that Marriott International (NYSE: MAR) is ahead of its sustainable sourcing goals for 2013.  In 2012, Marriott committed to spend 75 percent of its 2013 furniture, fixtures and equipment (FF&E) budget with suppliers who are part of the MindClick Hospitality Index for Sustainable Sourcing (HSP Index). As of June 15, 2013, Marriott has reached 60 percent of its goal.

"With over 30 participating suppliers representing 20 product categories ranging from bath fixtures to seating, carpets to casegoods, fabrics to mattresses, lighting to mirrors, and more, we are very pleased with the support we're seeing from of our suppliers," said Dave Lippert, Vice President Architecture & Construction Procurement for Marriott International.  Lippert continued, "Sustainability is of high importance to Marriott and to our guests and our communities, and we can make a significant impact by furnishing and supplying hotels in ways that are better for the guest, and better for the environment. We applaud the vendors who have supported us in this effort and look forward to more joining the MindClick Index program."

MindClick's HSP Index is used by global brands to source from suppliers whose operating practices, products and services help improve their customers' own sustainability performance.  Measuring supply chain performance in corporate social responsibility, environmental operations, and product sustainability, MindClick's Index serves to both "green" existing suppliers and provide access to new supplier solutions.  

"We are so impressed by the efforts of participating suppliers to be socially and environmentally responsible, and to find ways their products can help meet the increased demands for reducing the environmental impact of hotels," say JoAnna Abrams, CEO MindClick Global.

As a result of MindClick's Index, more than 25 percent of evaluated suppliers have set reduction and/or conservation targets.
