Hotels around the world are invited to participate in the second annual Green Lodging Trends Report.
Green Lodging News and Greenview have announced the launch of the second annual Green Lodging Trends Report Survey. The survey is the lodging industry’s annual exercise to assess and catalyse green innovation, best practices, and awareness regarding the state of sustainability across hotels worldwide.
Green lodging properties of any size, anywhere in the world are being encouraged to benchmark their sustainability practices by completing this survey which last year saw more than 2,100 properties participating from 44 countries. The survey will remain open through June 15th and you can participate by clicking here. There is no cost for taking part.
Glenn Hasek, Publisher and Editor of Green Lodging News, said, “I am excited to partner again 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. With the help of our supporters and sponsors, Green Lodging News and Greenview intend to reach tens of thousands of lodging establishments with this survey.” Grace Kang, Managing Partner, Greenview, said, “Just the way hoteliers benchmark against REVPAR and ADR among their peer groups, benchmarking sustainable best practices promotes friendly competition and motivates hotels to keep pace and even stay ahead of the game. We encourage hoteliers to take the ‘growth’ approach: everyone can grow and be better in the areas of sustainability. Whether the focus is to save costs, save time, enhance guest experience, or increase employee retention, there are plenty of best practices to choose from to grow year over year.”
The Green Lodging Trends Report Survey, which has the support of the Caribbean Hotel & Tourism Assn., Avendra, Boston Green Tourism, Green Seal, Brighton Management, Horwath HTL—Asia Pacific, Green Key, Travelife, Green Key Global and GreenOtels, is sponsored by Cass Information Systems, Inc., reCollect2 and ClearWater Tech.
The survey consists of about 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 participate by responding to the survey via the online Greenview Portal platform where work can be saved and answers easily can be 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.
