The future of the hotel business and the future of the environment are interconnected: without the wonders of nature, we lose one of the main reasons to travel.
The hotel business has a crucial stake in preserving the environment. Not only does tourism depend on the wonders of nature, travellers also place increasingly high demands on their hotels in terms of sustainability.
The GC-Mark “Green Hotel” guarantees the voluntary commitment of hotel management to do more for the environment than laws and regulations require. The mark is a means of communicating the sustainable image of a hotel to guests, investors and local authorities.
The GC-Mark standard focuses upon energy consumption, waste management, water usage, and the sustainability of purchases made.
With the GC-Mark Green Hotel, You Can:
- Demonstrate your commitment to sustainable management
- Identify chances to minimize adverse effects
- Discover new opportunities to increase efficiency
