With the deadline of June 15 approaching, there is still time to participate in the second annual Green Lodging Trends Report Survey produced by Green Lodging News and Greenview. You can participate in the survey by clicking here. There is no cost to do so. Tens of thousands of green lodging establishments around the planet are being encouraged to benchmark their sustainability practices by completing this survey which last year saw more than 2,100 properties participating from 44 countries.
The Green Lodging Trends Report Survey, which has the support of the Caribbean Hotel & Tourism Assn., Avendra, Boston Green Tourism, Green Seal, Brighton Management, Horwath HTL—Asia Pacific, Green Key, Travelife, Green Key Global and GreenOtels, is sponsored by Cass Information Systems, Inc., reCollect2 and ClearWater Tech.
The Green Lodging Trends Report Survey is the lodging industry’s annual exercise to assess and catalyze green innovation, best practices, and awareness regarding the state of sustainability across hotels worldwide. The Green Lodging Trends Report Survey is powered by Greenview, a leader in advancing hotel sustainability, and managed by Green Lodging News, lodging’s leading environmental news source.
“I am excited to partner again with Greenview on this global project that has been built to uncover and analyze lodging’s leading innovative best practices in the area of sustainability,” says Glenn Hasek, Publisher and Editor of Green Lodging News. “With the help of our supporters and sponsors, Green Lodging News and Greenview intend to reach tens of thousands of lodging establishments with this survey.”
“Just the way hoteliers benchmark against REVPAR and ADR among their peer groups, benchmarking sustainable best practices promotes friendly competition and motivates hotels to keep pace and even stay ahead of the game,” says Grace Kang, Managing Partner, Greenview. “We encourage hoteliers to take the ‘growth’ approach: everyone can grow and be better in the areas of sustainability. Whether the focus is to save costs, save time, enhance guest experience, or increase employee retention, there are plenty of best practices to choose from to grow year over year.”
The Survey: The survey consists of about 100 easy-to-complete questions covering the latest in operational practices, facility attributes, and outreach programs to conserve resources, reduce carbon emissions, increase guest experience, and make positive community impact. Hotels, resorts, and B&Bs participate by responding to the survey via the online Greenview Portal platform where work can be saved and answers easily can be updated for the next year’s survey.
The Trends Report: After the close of the survey, a Trends Report will be produced that will analyze the results with general trends and highlight exemplary practices and innovations that stand out, serving as a guidepost for the industry and especially the survey participants.

The Benchmarking Report: Survey participants will receive a compare report confidential to each participant, to serve as a yardstick for a property to understand the status of each specific practice within the general participant universe.
