Green Lodging Trends Report

The Green Lodging Trends Report 2018 is now available. Click here to access it. The next report will be produced in 2020.

The Green Lodging Trends Report 2018 was produced by Greenview, a leader in advancing hotel sustainability. The Green Lodging Trends Report is the lodging industry’s annual exercise to assess and catalyze green innovation, best practices, and awareness regarding the state of sustainability across hotels worldwide. The Report highlights and summarizes responses to 115 survey questions in these categories: Energy Management, Waste Management, Water Conservation, Health & Wellness, Back of House, Communications, Staff Involvement, Community Involvement, and Climate Action & Certification. This year, Greenview received data for 4,544 hotels across 61 countries.

Participants received an insightful Benchmarking Report with further peer analysis by location and market segmentation across all the best practices surveyed. One of the objectives of this report is to establish a benchmark against which one can compare one’s own property from year
to year – whether that is against one’s own progress or that of other similar properties. While impossible to tell the individual stories of thousands of properties, this report includes examples of best practices in action throughout the world.

The Green Lodging Trends Report 2018 has the support of World Wildlife Fund, C9 Hotelworks, Green Key, UNWTO, Green Lodging News, Green Key, Travelife, Green Key Global, Horwath HTL, Green Seal, and Boston Green Tourism.

Survey participants have an opportunity to discover new innovative practices that hotels are implementing, use information to improve and ultimately outperform their competitors, and highlight innovations to showcase to the world in the annual trends report.

Goals of the Green Lodging Trends Report:

  • Identify best practices in the industry that more hotels can benefit from
  • Discover innovative efforts by hotels that should be recognized and celebrated
  • Determine what is trending in hotel sustainability each year and over time
  • Increase awareness of the performance of individual facilities and the industry as a whole
  • Create a platform for discussion and spreading of innovation among hotels and their peers, suppliers and customers globally
  • Create a mechanism for tracking continuous improvement
  • Assist hotels in consolidating relevant sustainability information to provide customers
