Hyatt Joins Clinton Global Initiative To Advance Global Philanthropic Commitment

Stocks in this article: H

Hyatt Hotels Corporation (NYSE: H) is “Mobilizing for Impact” as a first-time participant in the 2013 Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) Annual Meeting. Hyatt Executive Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer Robb Webb will serve as the company’s delegate to the annual meeting. In addition to meeting with potential partners and thought leaders to inform Hyatt’s forthcoming CGI commitment, Webb served as a featured guest on the live webcast conference for Laureate International Universities, addressing more than 780,000 students around the world on how Hyatt is using its global brand presence to empower associates to make a difference in their own communities.

“We’re looking forward to connecting with innovators and collaborators who share Hyatt’s passion for caring for people and creating thriving communities all over the world,” said Webb. “CGI’s vision of mobilizing for impact and turning ideas into positive actions is exactly what Hyatt is all about. Through our collaboration with CGI and a variety of partners, we can create lasting, scalable success in the neighborhoods where our hotels are located, where our associates live and work and our guests come to visit. As our company continues on its journey to make a difference, we will continue to work with partners and allies that also have human care and human spirit at the heart of their business.”

The company, which earlier this year launched its Ready to Thrive philanthropy program to support education as a critical foundation for future success, is among the newest CGI members and expects to announce its formal commitment focused on caring for people and communities and advancing its global philanthropic commitment in 2014.

A Long-Standing Commitment to People and Communities

In 2011, Hyatt launched its signature corporate responsibility platform, Hyatt Thrive. Focused on care and responsibility, Hyatt Thrive formalized the company’s long-standing commitment to its people, the communities where its hotels operate and the planet. Along with establishing targets for reducing the company’s environmental impact, Hyatt Thrive sets a global vision of promoting responsible business practices across four key areas: environmental sustainability, education and personal advancement, economic development and investment, and health and wellness.

Hyatt expanded its corporate responsibility commitment with the launch of Ready to Thrive in 2013, a multi-year philanthropic commitment to education initiatives in Hyatt communities around the world. With a focus on literacy and career readiness, Ready to Thrive supports community organizations and programs that offer a launching point for individuals to learn and develop the critical skills needed to professionally advance.

Earlier this year, Hyatt also issued an update to its biannual corporate responsibility report, highlighting key milestones and initiatives for calendar year 2012. The full report is available at http://thrive.hyatt.com/responsibilityreport.html.

The term “Hyatt” is used in this release for convenience to refer to Hyatt Hotels Corporation or one or more of its subsidiaries and affiliates.
