Now open: Green Hotelier Awards 2015

Green Hotelier Awards postcard

The Green Hotelier Awards 2015 are now open - we're searching for the top in class when it comes to green hotels in Europe, Middle East and Africa, Asia Pacific and the Americas.

To reflect the increasingly broad geographical spread of our audience, this year our Green Hotelier Awards are open to hotels all over the world. There will be a winner and two runners up for each of the four regions. We are also hoping to attract entries from hotels of all shapes and sizes - whether you're a rustic island resort or inner city business hotel - if you've got a green story to tell we'd love to hear from you.

To enter

Simply download the application form, fill it out and send it back to us by post or email (see form for details). You will need to save a copy of the downloaded form and use the 'add text' button on Adobe Reader to enter your details. If you have any issues you can email for a copy of the form in pdf or Word via info@greenhotelier.org.

The deadline for applications is 2nd March. Entries must be submitted at an individual property level, whether independent or part of a group. Entries will be judged on how the hotel has addressed energy, water, waste, community and workplace sustainability. Whilst evidence of success in the above categories is important, innovation is also a key factor - we want to find the green pioneers out there!

Let us know you've entered or find out who else is getting involved by following us on Twitter and using the hashtag #GHawards.
