About the Green Hospitality Program

The Green Hospitality Program provides third-party verification that facilities in the tourism, hospitality and recreation sectors meet environmental best practice standards and demonstrate a strong commitment to water quality, water conservation, waste minimization, resource conservation, and energy efficiency. Through a comprehensive and credible method for assessing the extent of the environmental measures undertaken, participating facilities can reduce environment-related costs and gain a marketing advantage.

Good for the Environment, Good for Business

Stage 1: Self-Evaluation
Familiarize yourself and your staff with the program and the key aspects of environmental management for hospitality facilities. Conduct a review of your current practices and identify areas to improve. When you are ready, complete the Green Hospitality Designation Application and submit it to Audubon International.

Stage 2: Assessment
Audubon International Green Hospitality staff will review your application and schedule a site visit to verify your practices.

Stage 3: Verification
Audubon International Green Hospitality staff will direct an independent verification of your facility to assess its environmental best practices.
Stage 4: Eco-Rating Awarded
An eco-rating is awarded based on your overall score and site visit results. We will send your certificate and prepare an environmental performance report with suggestions about how to improve. Completed applications and reports are confidential and only accessible to you and program staff.

Stage 5: Continuous Improvement
You can increase your eco-rating! Tools are available to help you implement and expand environmental practices, including online resources and fact sheets.
