Travel Sustainable

Our sustainability recognition programme, accessible to all partners worldwide.

We believe in making sustainable travel choices easier for everyone. If done with respect for local communities, environments and biodiversity, travel can broaden horizons, reduce barriers and bring people closer together. We aim to promote a more sustainable travel industry, so we can collectively preserve a world worth experiencing.

Our shared journey starts by showcasing our partners’ sustainability practices

Every day, travellers discover more properties that are displaying sustainability practices on our platform. This helps guests book with confidence when looking for sustainable experiences as they know what to expect during their stay.

Globally, over two million accommodation partners can display their sustainability practices and reach millions of potential guests – no matter their property type, size and location.

 

Partners can choose from 32 sustainability practices – selected for their high impact potential and verified by independent sustainability experts.

 

The practices are visible on property pages in all the languages we support.

And now we’re making sustainable travel choices even easier

Introducing our Travel Sustainable badge, a global, first of its kind and independently validated recognition programme.

According to our research, 73% of travellers say they would be more likely to book a property with sustainability practices in place – yet 41% don’t know how to find sustainable travel options.

Our badge solves this by helping eligible properties attract more potential guests looking to travel sustainably.

 

Travellers can be confident that properties with the badge have had the impact of their sustainability practices assessed through our independently verified criteria model.

Our internationally recognisable and independently verified programme is now available for all properties

Our Travel Sustainable badge offers partners across the world recognition for their sustainability practices. 

Our system reviews submitted attributes against our independently validated model of sustainability criteria that takes into account geographic specifics related to the accessibility & cost to implement certain practices. Based on this input the assessment determines an overall impact score which informs eligibility of receiving a badge.
