GreenSign – The sustainability label for hotels

GreenSign is sustainability program and substainability label specifically elaborated for the hotel industry

GreenSign certification program enables the Hotels to represent their business as sustainable on the national and international markets. The GreenSign certified hotels keep to a sustainable hotel management and are sensitive to ecological demands, corporate citizenship and economic success.

The GreenSign certification program is designed by InfraCert – Institute for sustainable development in the hotel industry

The 85 criteria of the certification catalogue are based on international recognized frameworks for sustainability like the ISO 14001 (Eco-Management and Audi Scheme (EMAS)), the ISO 26000 (Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)) and the Global Sustainable Tourism Criteria (GSTC) and adapted to the hotel industry.

The hotel certification program comprises seven core areas of sustainable business: “Management and communication”, “Environment (Energy, water and waste)”, “Purchase”, “Regionality and mobility”, “Quality management and sustainable development”, “Social responsibility” and “Economic responsibility”, which represent an ongoing quality management and a responsible approach to sustainable future.

The classification of the hotel sustainability performance with GreenSign Level from 1 to 5 is finally awarded based on InfraCert authorised auditor's report. To achieve GreenSign level 1, at least 19 percent of the required criteria must be met in the seven core areas. The highest GreenSign level 5 requires a sustainability performance of at least 80 percent.

The GreenSign certificate is valid for 3 years

All hotels pass an on-site audit procedure with an independent expert. The audit ends with a quality report, so-called "Declaration of sustainability". One follow-up audit is planned for the following two years of the certification. The audit supervises the implementation of the customized hotel sustainability program, drafted at the beginning of the certification process, based on the seven core areas of sustainability.

Therefore, the hoteliers and clients are assured, that GreenSign certified Hotels satisfy high quality standards of sustainable business. Futhermore, an independent and high-level advisory board acts on a honorary basis as a control and advisory body of the certification.

Certification application

More than 100 GreenSign certified hotels in Germany and abroad confirm the high market recognition and quality level of GreenSign.
