How to Choose a Green Hotel
Green Habitat is all about sustainability, and we want to make it easy for everyone to travel sustainably. That’s why we partner with eco-friendly and green hotels and showcase their sustainability efforts. There are many ways in which we can contribute to the improvement of our environment. Some of them are as simple as choosing the right vacation spot. But how can you tell which hotels are truly eco-friendly? That's where our Green Badges come in.

Our Green Badges

Our Green Badges are a simple and transparent way to show you how green a hotel is. They are based on a set of sustainability criteria that we have developed, inspired by the national sustainability initiative. The more criteria a hotel fulfills, the more Green Badges it receives. They consist of four green leaves, each representing a level of sustainability. You can see them on each hotel's profile page, along with a detailed explanation of what they mean. Our Green Badges are good for everyone: the environment, the travelers, and the hotels.

Our Sustainability Criteria

Above all, the conscious use of water and energy, the use of regional and organic food as well as resource-saving management and leisure activities are taken into account.
