Sustainability Goals and Performance 2021
Minor established an initial set of Sustainability Goals in 2018 which addresses our materiality topics as well as responds to 7 UN Sustainable Development Goals. The goals are tracked, updated, and added according to business relevancies and global sustainability trends.
In 2021, Minor has achieved a total of four long-term sustainability goals, one under “People” and three under “Planet”: 1) 1 million people developed and supported by 2023, 2) 20% reduction in energy intensity for Minor Hotels by 2023 (Baseline 2016), 3) 20% reduction in carbon dioxide emission for Minor Hotels by 2023 (Baseline 2016), and 4) 20% reduction in water intensity for Minor Hotels by 2023 (Baseline 2016).
In addition to our accomplishment of the above four long-term goals, three annual goals were also achieved: 1) 50% internal promotion of management levels each year, 2) Minor International maintains annual “Excellent” CG scoring, and 3) 100% of employees trained on anti-corruption and Company Code of Conduct each year. We will continue to monitor our annual performance to ensure these targets are sustainably achieved.
With these achievements, we have revised one goal to stretch ourselves for greater impact. The “People” goal is extended to “3 million people developed and supported by 2030”.
Minor pledges to become a “Net-zero Carbon organization by 2050”, and endeavors to set a science-based target for the combination of scope 1 & 2 in 2022 by consolidating carbon inventory of business units under our operational control. As we undertake this exercise, we decided to delay the establishment of new group-wide energy, carbon dioxide emission, and water goals in 2021.
In addition to the revised goal, a new goal under “Planet” was also established for “50% reduction in organic waste to landfill for Minor Hotels by 2030 (Baseline 2021)”.
