Sustainable Hotel Scheme Gets Green Light
Jet2holidays has launched a new hotel labelling scheme, meaning customers and independent travel agents can now choose from a collection of certified sustainable hotels that meet Global Sustainable Tourism Council (GSTC) Recognised standards.
Hotels in the collection can be easily identified on the Jet2holidays direct and trade websites by a label identifying them as a ‘Certified Sustainable Hotel’.
In addition, the UK’s largest tour operator has also launched a new certified Sustainable Hotels’ landing page where the entire collection can be viewed. Currently featuring over 800 hotels, the collection can be found here: www.jet2holidays.com/sustainable-hotels
The standards are based on actions around sustainable hotel management as well as initiatives that support the local community at social and economic levels, including positive cultural impacts and environmental protection.
Jet2holidays became a member of the GSTC in September 2021.
The announcement supports Jet2’s continuing journey towards achieving net zero by 2050, in line with Government targets.
