In 2018, Hilton launched our ambitious Travel with Purpose commitment to deliver positive social and environmental change on a global scale by 2030. Responsible sourcing is a key part of our corporate responsibility strategy.
Among our 2030 goals was a global commitment to sustainably source poultry (including eggs) wherever possible and for every hotel Hilton manages. This was an extension of our 2015 commitment to switch to cage-free eggs in 19 countries, and for all Hilton Hotels & Resorts, Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts, Conrad Hotels & Resorts, Canopy by Hilton and DoubleTree by Hilton hotels by the end of 2017.
We have made important progress against that commitment, including sourcing more than 70 percent of eggs from cage-free sources across our footprint in the United States, our largest market, and the United Kingdom. As our 2018 corporate responsibility report noted, we continue to work with our hotels and suppliers to extend this commitment, including to markets that present challenges in terms of available, affordable supply.
Today we are pleased to join others in our industry and formalize our commitment of sourcing 100 percent of our eggs (shell, liquid, and egg products) globally from cage-free sources for Hilton’s entire portfolio* by the end of 2025. We will also make our cage-free egg policy available in key native languages, and continue to publish our progress annually.
We look forward to continuing our partnership with suppliers, civil society and the industry to drive positive and sustainable change in responsible sourcing.
