Comparing the environmental impact of hotels stays has been impossible.Until now.
The HRS Green Stay Initiative champions the environment on multiple levels:
Encourages travelers to make green booking decisions.
Provides transparency, reporting and steering capabilities for a greener hotel program.
Helps hotels assess their environmental footprint free of charge, using data and minimal effort.
How we do it
are you a hotel and want to join green stay?
PUTTING THE ENVIRONMENT FIRST
Our Green Stay Initiative takes a scientific approach to decarbonizing hotel stays and establishes sustainable best practices.
It is based on industry approaches, such as the Hotel Carbon Measurement Initiative (HCMI), the Greenhouse Gas Protocol and work by the World Travel & Tourism Council.
The benefits of going green
The HRS Green Stay Initiative gives travelers and businesses a standardized way to compare the sustainability of different hotel stays.
HRS offers transparency, within booking tools that highlight the footprint for any given property.
The data included in the procurement platform provides active steering capabilities to decision makers on hotel carbon emissions, water and waste management. Plus API data which feeds internal carbon reporting.
HRS offers hotel owners a free, online footprint analysis, aligned with global standards. We also benchmark their competitors, helping them to stay ahead. And we offer marketing support for verified footprint-reducing investments.

An ambitious initiative, with signatories pledging to implement decarbonization strategies and efficiency improvements to achieve Net-Zero annual carbon emissions by 2040, a decade in advance of goals formalized in the Paris Agreement.
Beyond helping our hotel partners and corporate clients adopt more sustainable practices via our Green Stay Initiative, HRS is consistently driving awareness among employees and in our operational choices. From our headquarters in Germany across all our global locations, we’re more efficient in our energy use, leveraging renewable sources and smartly revising our water and waste protocols. We’re also requiring evidence of sustainability enhancements among the partners we work with to serve our worldwide client base.
We’ve only got one planet. At HRS, we are committed to nurture it and keep it safe for future generations to travel for work and pleasure. We hope your company will consider joining the Climate Pledge in the future.
