Welcome to Green Hotelier
Green Hotelier is the leading source of information on the sustainable and responsible agenda within the hotel industry. As the key communication tool of the International Tourism Partnership, which works with global hotel chains to drive the responsible agenda, Green Hotelier has a serious commitment to delivering accessible, expert and honest content.
Launched in 1996, the original publication was in magazine format and sought to spread the word on leading initiatives within the industry whilst also providing practical advice to hoteliers looking to imitate them. The world has changed a lot since then, and so has Green Hotelier. The website form of the publication was refreshed in July 2012, providing anyone interested in sustainability within the hotel industry with easy-to-navigate, comprehensive and fresh information, practical advice and tools.
Whether a hotelier looking to ‘green’ your property, a responsible tourism student, a sustainability commentator or someone simply looking to keep on top of the latest industry news, we hope you find heaps of helpful information and resources.
