Sustainability solutions

Achieve higher visibility, save costs, and offer a more sustainable experience

73% of guests would be more likely to book an accommodation if it had sustainability practices in place. By making sustainable choices at your property, you can lower your environmental impact and boost your social impact, while attracting the growing number of guests looking for sustainable stays. 

Tell us the sustainability practices your property adopts in the Extranet and we’ll communicate it on your property page. Your property may even be recognized with a Travel Sustainable badge, which can set you apart from the competition.

What our partners think

"Implementing sustainable measures has improved the business without any question. It's improved how we and our staff feel about working here, plus the number of returning guests is higher."  

The Botanic Apartments, Warrnambool

 

"You don't have to know everything about sustainability at the beginning because you learn and develop during your journey. You can't do everything at once, but you do discover new opportunities along the way."   

Stayokay Hostels, The Netherlands
