HMSHost Presents @ NRA Board Meeting

HMSHost presented at the fall National Restaurant Association's Board meeting to the Sustainability & Social Responsibility Committee.  Linda Dunn, HMS Host VP Supply Chain & Analysis, gave an excellent overview of HMSHost's substantial commitment to sustainability throughout their operations and extending to community service.

With nearly 100 airport airport concessions contracts around the globe, annual sales in excess of $2.5 billion, over 34,000 associates worldwide and an unmatched portfolio of over 250 international, regional local and proprietary brands, HMSHost is a powerful leader who is evolving the operating standards of the foodservice industry.

HMSHost has a formal Sustainability Platform:
“Making the traveler’s day better” by reassuring our customers, partners, and employees that HMSHost has a sustainable, responsible foundation.
Lead by example and encourage customers, partners, and employees to become more sustainable by just starting somewhere since “Each Act Of Green Builds A Better Future” 
Linda wrapped-up her impressive presentation with the role HMSHost's participation in the NRA ConServe Program and Elemental Impact | Zero Waste Zones | Sustainable Food Court Initiative plays in their over sustainability commitment.  NRA|Ei participation helps HMSHost achieve goals in the following manner:
  • Identify additional target organizations & alliances to join, support or participate in; become a collaborative voice to develop realistic solutions.
  • Increase depth of HMSHost’s knowledge of sustainability issues, potential solutions and external resources.
  • Identify additional best practices (internal and external) and communicate across our system.

It is inspiring to work with Linda and her team - as individuals they are driven by personal integrity and as corporate associates they are backed by their company's stated mission.  Stay tuned for many exciting tales from the journey with HMSHost.
