How We Serve Our World: Marriott International continued to support the resiliency of its communities recovering from disaster, including working with World Central Kitchen on their mission to feed the people of Puerto Rico through financial and in-kind support, as well as volunteerism. Beyond disaster recovery, Marriott is also working with World Central Kitchen to support the island’s economic development by exploring increased sourcing opportunities with local farmers. In Brazil, the company celebrated the 10th anniversary of its partnership with the Amazonas Sustainable Foundation and its investment in the Amazon Rainforest through the Juma Sustainable Development Reserve. Across the CALA region, Marriott hotels supported the training of over 120 underserved youth, including survivors of human trafficking, in partnership with Youth Career Initiative. Empowerment efforts were a focus for Canada as well, where Marriott launched a pilot project with Prince’s Trust Canada to provide hospitality training in Toronto, which will expand nationwide in 2019. The program focuses on empowering youth from underserved communities, with a commitment to hire 50% of participants. These efforts support Marriott’s commitment to Nurture Our World, Sustain Responsible Operations, Empower Through Opportunity, and Welcome All and Advance Human Rights as part of its sustainability and social impact platform, Serve 360: Doing Good in Every Direction.
