Marriott: A full-circle auditing system
After partnering with ENERGY STAR in 2001, Marriott embarked on an ambitious, company-wide mission to enhance its energy management systems and procedures. To carry out this mission, Marriott needed a uniform auditing and inspection system for each of its properties.
Marriott's solution was to collect information at each of the properties through two methods: a bimonthly property audit called an Energy Awareness Measure and daily Routine Inspection Reports which ensure that all associates are actively participating in the property's energy conservation action plan. At the end of each quarter, the property's General Manager and Energy Conservation Committee meet to review the audit forms and inspection reports that have been filed over the previous three months. This review is the foundation for setting goals for the next quarter.
This full-circle approach to observing and improving energy management systems and procedures contributed to Marriott saving $4.5 million annually.
