Travelife is an internationally recognised sustainable tourism certification and that is why it is helping ABTA and the Travel Foundation to coordinate this year’s Make Holidays Greener 2016 campaign (#MHG2016) to engage its member hotels.
Hotels that achieve the prestigious Travelife Gold Certification have been encouraged to participate in this year’s campaign as it is a fantastic way to engage staff and guests to protect the environment. All over the world, hotels can organise a beach, mountain or park clean as it is just one way to care for the environment.
To achieve a Travelife Gold certification, a hotel must take measures to reduce its non-renewable energy, waste, and water usage. Amongst a long list of sustainability criteria, a hotel must also take care of its employees and contribute to the local economy.
To find out more about how to achieve a Gold Certification, take a look at the Travelife website.
As part of the Travelife audit criteria, a hotel must show how it is managing to reduce, reuse and recycle including plastic, glass and metal!
