ITP (the International Tourism Partnership) has released the latest in its series of free Know How Guides for hoteliers, helping them steer a path through the main sustainable hotel certification schemes.
Many hoteliers seeking certification for their greener hotel will know there is a broad range of different schemes available, and understanding which one is the best for you can be prove difficult. Some schemes are more rigorous than others and they all have a different focus and differing levels to attain.
The Know How Guide offers a detailed look at what each scheme entails and tests, as well as the different available levels of certification, how extensive the questioning and authentication and whether there is a cost.
A handy database at the end of the Guide allows readers a quick comparison of all the schemes included.
