About the Green Hospitality Program
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.
