Select Green Hotels is a member of the Global Sustainable Tourism Council (GSTC). The GSTC manages global standards for sustainable travel and tourism and provides international accreditation for sustainable tourism Certification Bodies. Membership is open to all interested parties and does not by itself imply endorsement by the GSTC of the policies and practices of the member organization.
Why are we showcasing eco-labels in addition to our sustainability criteria?
Usually, we strive for minimalism. However, when it comes to inspections by certifications bodies, we think the more the merrier. An eco certificate offers an extra layer of guidance to the traveler and thus helps to make more conscious choices. All hotel certifications that we demonstrate on our site, are following international standards and are officially recognized by the GSTC.
