About Us

Green Hotelier, brought to you by the International Tourism Partnership, is a leading website for information on environmental and social responsibility in the hospitality industry.

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.

Commentary, advice and practical solutions can be browsed thematically or by destination. In our resources section you will find know how articles, tools and publication suggestions. For sustainable best practice browse our interviews with industry leaders and hotel property case studies. And finally, industry news and events will help you keep up to date with all the latest developments.

About the International Tourism Partnership

The International Tourism Partnership is a global programme of Business in the Community that brings together the world’s leading international hotel companies to provide a voice for environmental and social responsibility in the industry. We work to demonstrate in a very practical way that environmental and social responsibility makes good business sense.

We do this by:

  • highlighting best practice
  • offering a range of practical products and programmes
  • tackling emerging sustainability issues through our collaborative working groups

Our programmes and products include, among others, the Youth Career Initiative, the Hotel Carbon Measurement Initiative, the Green Hotelier online magazine and the Environmental Management for Hotels handbook.

The members of the International Tourism Partnership represent some of the largest travel and tourism companies in the world, with a collective reach of over 22,000 properties, more than 3.1m rooms and nearly 1.5m employees in over 100 countries worldwide. They understand that only through collective, industry-wide action at local, destination and country levels can real progress be made towards a more sustainable hotel, travel and tourism industry.
