Green Hospitality Awards
2023 NEWS: Our new Platinum Award Standard has been formally Recognised by the Global Sustainable Tourism Council (GSTC)
Our internationally recognised Third-Party Environmental & Sustainability Certification Programme. It is aligned with the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s), is based on the Global Sustainable Tourism Council (GSTC) and the EU Ecolabel Criteria, supports the Sustainable Hospitality Alliance (SHA) Pathway to Net Positive Hospitality and provides world class benchmark tools based on the SHA Hotel Carbon, Water & Waste Measurement Methodologies
Hospitality businesses that wish to be recognised for their environmental and sustainability actions, who are required by clients to demonstrate these actions and who wish to gain competitive advantage by promoting these credentials, will aim to achieve certification
Cost saving accompanies environmental programme implementation.
Our Certification Programme is designed as a Step-by-Step approach allowing businesses implement the required criteria at their own pace. The Eco-Label Award is the first step and focuses on implementing a strong foundation – an environmental management system. The Silver and Gold Awards build on the Eco-Label criteria and the Platinum Award emphasises key sustainability pillars with additional best practice environmental activities.
