We at bookdifferent.com get questions from hoteliers all the time about how they can implement more responsible practices and be part of bookdifferent.com. That is why we wanted to give you, as a hotelier, all the information in one place and help your accommodation become more sustainable.
“How can my hotel join bookdifferent.com and get a green label?”, is a question we regularly get from hoteliers. At bookdifferent.com we work together with eligible ecolabels – organizations that certify hotels – to offer our customers a trustworthy source of certified and “green” hotels. These ecolabels need to comply with our 3 criteria: standard publicly available, third-party audit, onsite assessment. We do this to combat greenwashing which is a huge issue in the sustainable tourism industry.
So how do I become certified?
We are more than happy to refer you to one of our partner-ecolabels to start the certification process. Once that is all completed, your hotel will get a green label on bookdifferent.com!eco-certified hotels

At bookdifferent.com we also want to bridge the gap for hoteliers who do not see the value in being certified by an ecolabel yet and provide them with an opportunity to showcase their environmental commitments.
The hotel carbon footprint is an online user-friendly tool specifically designed to report on your carbon emissions and is based on HCMI methodology, developed by the International Tourism Partnership and the World Travel & Tourism Council in collaboration with Peterson Projects and Solutions as our knowledge partner.carbon footprint calculator for hoteliers
