Sustainability criteria at bookitgreen

Sustainability assessment

The 15 sustainability criteria are displayed as green leaves in the overview and detail pages of every accommodation.

bookitgreen has developed 15 criteria that we use to evaluate sustainability for every accommodation listed on our platform. Each accommodation’s fulfillment of these criteria is indicated by the host – the system works on the basis of trust. Guests can confirm the accommodation’s sustainability by submitting a sustainability score on bookitgreen after their stay.

1-5 green leaves

If an accommodation meets four sustainability criteria, it receives one green leaf; if it meets 12 or more criteria, we give it the maximum score of five green leaves.
