FT. LAUDERDALE, FL—Valley Forge Fabrics has been awarded the 2012 Marriott International Supplier Sustainability Leadership award, which is designed to recognize one of Marriott International’s suppliers who has made the greatest impact on their guests and properties annually. This year, both Valley Forge Fabrics and Ecolab took home the award, which was announced at Marriott’s International Global Discipline Conference.
“We are thrilled to recognize Valley Forge as a sustainability leader,” said Bradley Colton, operations leader of Marriott International, in a statement. “Valley Forge has proven themselves time and time again with the largest collection of environmentally friendly products and continues to raise the bar in hospitality.”
Diana Dobin, president of Valley Forge said in a statement, “We define sustainability as the way we interact with people within our organization and the community, the impact we have on the environment and the impact that our efforts have on our bottom line. We believe that by taking care of our people and the planet, we will be able to take care of our company. Being recognized by Marriott as a leader in sustainability is extremely meaningful to us.”
The most recent NYU Conference, earlier this month proved, once and for all, that the lodging industry has finally turned the corner and happy days are, indeed, here again. While the economists and pundits all provided plenty of anecdotal evidence to bear that out in terms of supply and demand ratios, RevPAR projections, asset values and all the other metrics, that’s not what has me convinced.
