Set your brand apart

Now more than ever, guests are looking for proven-green properties – 70% of global travelers say they’re more likely to book a green accommodation, and 62% prefer one with an ecolabel.  Green hotels are positioned to capture the burgeoning interest in wellness tourism, which is growing twice as fast as tourism overall. And with leading corporations, governments and associations making green meetings a requirement, earning Green Seal Certification under our Hotels Standard is a valuable differentiator that unlocks lucrative business opportunities.

Green Seal was the catalyst to get us focused on sustainability. Just by changing out the showerheads in our building we saved more than 10 million gallons of water per year. And we’ve booked more than $200,000 in revenue that we can directly tie back to our sustainability program and Green Seal.
