Turning Hospitality
into a Catalyst for
Sustainable Development

GREEN Hospitality is a not-for-profit collaborative platform that enables and supports sustainability in hotels, restaurants, airlines, tour operators, corporates, and related supply chains.

The issue of sustainability in the hospitality industry is too complex to be addressed by a single actor. In order to advance sustainability programs and practices across the entire sector, there needs to be collaboration, cooperation, and a shared commitment.


This is how GREEN Hospitality came into being.

We bring together relevant parties from across the entire hospitality supply chain to foster collaboration.

We highlight and share ideas, create innovations, and actionable, real-world solutions that have an identifiable positive impact.
