Marriott was in fact the sole hotel group to be part of the 2010’s ‘Top 12 Green IT Companies’, awarded by Computerworld magazine.
Marriott was recognised for its efforts to make its hightech operations more energy effi cient and less wasteful. As an example a new cooling system for the company’s data centre and improved temperature management, which allowed a 5-7° temperature increase and a water consumption
reduction of approximately 58% since 2007.
Other actions include server virtualisation, desktop power management and recycling of IT assets.
