hilton energy manageHilton Worldwide says more than 4,200 of its properties around the world are now ISO 50001 energy management certified. The hotelier achieved the certification following a comprehensive upgrade to its LightStay global environmental management system.

Hilton Worldwide achieved ISO 9001 (quality management) and 14001 (environmental management) certifications in 2011, and was fully recertified to both of these standards this year. With these certifications, Hilton Worldwide has certified its entire system globally.

In addition to meeting ISO 50001, the upgrades to LightStay allow Hilton Worldwide hotels to forecast future energy consumption levels, receive alerts when a variation from expected levels is perceived, and ensure any energy variances from expected baselines are reported.

Going forward, properties will be able to set individual efficiency goals through LightStay and track real-time progress against those goals.
