Grand Hyatt Mumbai Hotel and Residences Takes One More Step Towards Sustainability


Over the past 65 years, care has been at the heart of everything that we do at Hyatt. As our world evolves and new challenges emerge, we have brought our global Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) strategy to life through our World of Care platform. Deeply embedded across all areas of our business, World of Care is our global approach to advancing care for the planet, people and responsible business. Our focus areas and goals were defined by understanding what is important to our colleagues, guests, customers, owners and communities. Our ongoing engagement with these stakeholders and our broader supply chain enables us to continue to evolve our strategy to address emerging needs. We also understand the importance of our focus areas supporting key United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, helping us to further align with broader, long-term positive impact.

Grand Hyatt Mumbai Hotel and Residences, with a vast operation of over 30,000 sq.ft of banquets, 7 food and beverage restaurants and more than an inventory of 600 rooms, suites and residences, the hotel with its newly installed water bottling plant is in support of the government’s Go Green initiatives.

Grand Hyatt Mumbai, a city resort offers moments of more and grand experiences providing intimate interactions with the people, culture, and local experiences of Mumbai, while also being responsible for the community and the environment. Blending characteristics of Responsible Tourism and Ecotourism, the hotel is the latest to install an automated sustainable drinking water bottling plant at the property, with the assistance of Boon (Formerly known as Swajal WaterCube). Grand Hyatt Mumbai takes pride in supporting sustainable tourism and reducing its carbon footprint by using biodegradable materials. The program works on the circular economy principle, where an automated in-house system washes, sterilizes and fills glass bottles, thereby not only cutting down on plastic waste but also eliminating carbon emissions involved in transporting the bottles to the hotel from a plant. With the new bottling system, able to process 500 litres of water per hour, our guests will be treated to safe packaged drinking water.

“At Hyatt, our purpose is to care for people so they can be their best. And being located in one of the largest economies in India, the Grand Hyatt Mumbai Hotel and Residences with its international presence is adapting sustainable practices that not only support the communities and ecosystems, but provide economic value for the hotel. As a global practice of eradicating single-use plastic from across our operations, and the travelers increasing demand for implementation of eco-friendly practices, the newly installed water bottling plant will be another step towards showcasing our efforts of going green and offering meaningful experiences.”
