Marriott’s Expanding Social Responsibility Program Wins Conde Nast Traveler’s Prestigious ’World Savers’ Award
Marriott International (NYSE: MAR) received the prestigious “World Savers” award from Condé Nast Traveler magazine for its outstanding Community Engagement and Social Responsibility program. Marriott was selected as the leading “chain hotel & resort” company, with The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company, L.L.C., receiving an honorable mention in the distinguished second place position.
The award was based on a comprehensive evaluation of the company’s community service initiatives, with a focus on the areas of education, health, poverty relief, cultural and environmental preservation, and wildlife conservation. “Think about [the winners] the next time you book a trip. You too, through your travel decisions, can help change the world,” wrote Condé Nast Traveler magazine.
