Sustainable Lodging Tips

Look for more sustainable lodging options. Some hotels and guesthouses take tangible steps to reduce their environmental impacts. Research carefully, and refer to credible sustainability ranking and certification schemes where available such as Green Key Global, Green Globe or Trip Advisor’s Green Leaders

Inquire about their commitment to sustainability. If a trusted certification or ranking is not available, make inquiries. Do they have a policy or strategy for addressing social, environmental, and economic criteria? Have they implemented any sustainability initiatives? Be aware of greenwashing and marketing gimmicks.

Choose accommodation that reduces daily travel. If possible, choose lodging in a neighbourhood that will allow you to use active or public transit to get to events and meetings.

Be a conscientious visitor. You can take small actions to reduce the impact of your stay. Turn off lights and A/C when you’re not in the room, opt out of having your linens and towels changed daily, bring your own toiletries to mitigate single-use plastics, and unplug small appliances and electronics you don’t plan on using. If you are so inclined, take time to learn about the local history and culture and enjoy locally produced food, too.
