Green Toolbox

Wyndham Worldwide utilizes its Wyndham Green Toolbox, a proprietary, online environmental management system, which we developed to manager our energy, emissions, water and waste performance company-wide. Developed in 2010, the Toolbox is a state-of-the-art system that was crated to be flexible, scalable and customizable to match the Company's global presence across its business units. The Wyndham Green Toolbox allows both owned and managed properties, as well as independently owned and operated franchises properties to track, measure and report on global assets in which Wyndham Worldwide has direct operational control. It is available in multiple languages and currencies and provides normalization for weather and room nights to all for comparison among properties in various regions. The Toolbox helps to not only improve the data accuracy, but also to quantify the results in a timely manner. The flexibility of the Toolbox has enabled us to make continuous improvements each year, upgrading and adding new features to monitor our progress towards reaching our 2025 environmental targets.

The Toolbox is an integral part of our sustainability program. As of 2012, the Company has opened up the Toolbox platform to our franchisee portfolio as a complimentary service.

In 2013, a third party, GreenCircle Certified, independently reviewed Wyndham Worldwide's environmental management system in preparation for advanced verification. The review included Wyndham Worldwide's environmental policies and procedures, the Wyndham Green Toolbox, and Wyndham Vacation Ownership's Green certification.
