Expedia ties up with Green Key, to recognise sustainable hotel operations


18 March 2010

HBI Staff, Mumbai:

Expedia.com, the online travel website has incorporated the Green Key Eco-Rating Programme alongside other sustainability programmes, into a new feature on its website, which will allow listed properties to showcase their commitment to ‘green’ hotel operations. The agreement is part of Expedia’s efforts to upgrade the resources available to eco-conscious travellers within the expedia.com website and the ‘Traveler’s Guide to Going Green’ micro-site.

According to a report in hotelnewsresource.com, Expedia has created a number of avenues for Green Key member properties to be found on Expedia sites. Green Key members can highlight their participation in the programme by registering via Expedia Partner Central and Green Key member properties can be found through the following: in award and affiliation on the hotel infosite on the details page; as an amenity, searchable under the category of ‘Green/Sustainability’ and on the Green Hotels list which will be searchable by destination.

Green Key, the first programme of its kind to rank, certify and audit hotels and resorts based on their commitment to sustainable ‘green’ operations, is a Joint Venture between LRA Worldwide, Inc and the Hotel Association of Canada.
