ECOTEL® is a certification that enables hotels to become sustainable by primarily reducing the environmental impact of their business and becoming financially more viable and socially responsible. Managed by HVS Sustainability, ECOTEL® was developed in 1994. Since then, it has evolved in keeping with advances in global warming, resource conservation, pollution prevention, building standards and social responsibility. Today, its criteria are commensurate with those internationally recognised for sustainability.   
Through a focused effort on reducing waste generation and increasing operational efficiencies, ECOTELs have consistently demonstrated that ‘going green’ is good for the bottomline.  Our certification recognises these exceptional hotels, through a stringent assessment of the range, scope and results of their earth-friendly practices across five parameters, known as ‘The Five Globes’:  Sustainability Commitment, Waste Management, Energy Management, Water Management, and Employee Education and Community Involvement. Learn about the Globes.
