We offset the CO2 produced by your overnight stay

GreenHotelWorld is a non-profit initiative, with a firm believe that every hotel business should account for its negative impact on the environment. The hotel industry is responsible for 1% of the global CO2 emissions, however is often reluctant to invest in climate friendly accommodation.
We believe the only way to solve this is to increase the demand for climate friendly hotels. By starting your booking process at GreenHotelWorld, we not only make sure your overnight stay is 100% climate friendly by offsetting the emissions, we also approach the hotels and let them hear our collective voices.

sharing our mission

We believe that we cannot overcome today's climate change challenges without drastically changing our economic system. If we want to succeed in slowing down the warming of our planet and create a prosperous future for many generations to come, we need to change the way we conduct business. Our belief is that the travel industry is THE place to start this transition to a sustainable economic model. Not only because 5% of the world's carbon emissions can be contributed to the travel industry. More importantly, because there is hardly any person in the world not dealing with the travel industry in one way or another. The travel industry is uniquely positioned to take the lead and showcase the world why and how we can transition to a new economic system based on both profitability and sustainability. We aim to educate and empower our visitors to be part of the transition to a sustainable economic model.
