Green lodging establishments around the world are being urged to participate in a free global survey.
The Green Lodging Survey  hopes to capture the data of tens of thousands of green lodging establishments around the world and become the lodging industry’s annual exercise to assess and catalyse green innovation, best practices, and awareness of the state of sustainability across hotels worldwide.
The Green Lodging Survey is powered by Greenview, a leader in advancing hotel sustainability, and managed by Green Lodging News, lodging’s leading environmental news source, and sponsored by The Arbor Day Foundation  at the Silver level and Pineapple Hospitality , Aquawing Ozone Laundry Systems  and reCollect2 Co.  at the Bronze level.
Glenn Hasek, Publisher and Editor of Green Lodging News says, “I’m excited to partner with Greenview on this global project that has been built to uncover and analyse lodging’s leading innovative best practices in the area of sustainability. We intend to reach tens of thousands of lodging establishments with this survey.”
Eric Ricaurte, Founder & CEO of Greenview says, “We see sustainability as a continuous adoption of best practices, more efficient and engaging technology, and innovation. The Green Lodging Survey strives to be a key resource for a hotel to benchmark itself along this adoption path, one practice at a time. Rather than viewing a hotel as either ‘green’ or ‘not’, the Green Lodging Survey will enable the industry to see the general progression.” The survey consists of around 100 easy-to-complete questions covering the latest in operational practices, facility attributes, and outreach programmes to conserve resources, reduce carbon emissions, increase guest experience, and make positive community impact. Hotels, Resorts, and B&Bs can participate by responding to the survey via the online Greenview Portal platform where work can be saved and answers can be easily updated for the next year’s survey.
After the close of the survey, a Trends Report will be produced that will analyse the results with general trends and highlight exemplary practices and innovations that stand out, serving as a guidepost for the industry and especially the survey participants. Survey participants will receive a compare report confidential to each participant, to serve as a yardstick for a property to understand the status of each specific practice within the general participant universe.
