InfraCert is an institute for practical research and development in the field of sustainable business, especially for the hotel industry and tourism destinations with different service providers and actors. As a specialist in sustainability and the certification of hotels with the GreenSign, InfraCert is mainly characterized by its practical research with well-known partners in the hotel and tourism industry.
For the founder and managing director of InfraCert - Suzann Heinemann - "green" hotel management is no longer just a fad, but offers a clear competitive advantage and is increasingly becoming a "must have" in the hotel industry. Today, sustainability is an expression of a value system that stands for innovation, stability, forward planning and trusting cooperation with employees and partners with regard to ecological and social aspects.
InfraCert is committed to ensuring that the hotel industry and destinations with an environmental strategy equip themselves innovatively and profitably for the future in the long term and that this is proudly and transparently communicated with the GreenSign sustainability seal.
GreenSign is the No. 1 sustainability seal for the hotel industry.
Successful networking is essential for optimizing the company's sustainability strategy. In the GreenCommunity, InfraCert focuses on an authentic, constructive and permanent sustainability dialogue between the hotel business, industry and science. With a large network of sustainable partners, hoteliers have easy and inexpensive access to sustainable products that improve their ecological footprint and increase cost efficiency in the long term.
In 2015 the GreenSign was developed by InfraCert. As a scientifically substantiated piece of work, the standards of ISO 14001, ISO 26000 and EMAS are anchored in the GreenSign criteria catalog. A close connection between the GreenSign and practice ensures easy implementation in the hotel. After the catalog has been revised several times in accordance with developments and trends in the hotel industry and in sustainability, there is now 75% conformity with the Global Sustainable Tourism Council, GSTC for short, which accredits certification centers worldwide for their scientific and credibility. The seal, which is now the market leader in Germany, is supported by an independent and high-ranking sustainability advisory board.
To continuously improve sustainability activities, hoteliers can contact InfraCert at any time for competent advice. The environmental management system integrated in GreenSign helps with the structured and timed implementation of planned initiatives. In addition to the sustainable development of the hotel business, InfraCert attaches great importance to the transparent communication of sustainability progress and the sensitization of employees, guests, partners and suppliers of the hotel.
