Hotel Sustainability Basics is a globally recognised and coordinated set of sustainability indicators that all hotels should implement as a minimum. Developed by the industry for the industry, under the auspices of the World Travel & Tourism Council, they represent the 12 actions that are fundamental to hotel sustainability. The “Basics” have been deliberately designed to align with existing frameworks and certifications, such as the Sustainable Hospitality Alliance’s Pathway to Positive Hospitality, the Global Sustainable Tourism Council’s (GSTC) hotel criteria, the UNESCO/Expedia Pledge, Travalyst, Booking.com, Google, and the Sustainable Development Goals. By starting with the Basics, a hotel can move forward using any of these frameworks in order to further improve their sustainability performance.
