Global Cage-Free Commitment – As part of our Social Responsibility program, we take steps every day to minimize the impact our operations have on the world around us. While we have a very limited food and beverage program, we remain committed to developing, implementing, and publicly reporting on sustainable food and beverage initiatives. In support of this commitment, in 2020 all Travel + Leisure Co. North America resorts transitioned to fully source cage-free eggs and egg products. In addition, we are still on target to source all cage free shell and egg product globally by 2025, having achieved 40% to date outside of North America.
