The hotel industry grossly accounts for a large portion of the world’s pollution. Did you know that one overnight hotel stay can produce over 20kg of CO2 alone? GreenHotelWorld is the first hotel booking platform that sorts through hotels by certified green practices, while offsetting the carbon emissions of all overnight stays at no additional cost. With its unique “Green Rating” algorithm, customers can filter search results by a hotel’s verified green practices, such as the protection of the environment, social responsibility, support for local economy and/or preservation of cultural heritage.
