We offset the CO2 produced by your overnight stay
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 advocate for a greener hotel industry.
hotels produce 350,000,000 tonnes co2 per year
The international hotel industry directly contributes 1% of the global CO2 emissions. This equals approximately 350,000,000 tonnes of CO2, which is as large as the total yearly emissions of the United Kingdom.
your overnight hotel stay is a suitcase full of CO2
One overnight hotel stay produces an estimated 20.6kg of CO2 emissions. Hotel energy uses include lighting, heating, cooling, cleaning, escalators, spa/pool/sauna facilities, etc.

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.
