Panormo, Rethymno, Greece, May 14, 2015 — — Travelife – the international sustainability certification scheme – assesses a property’s performance in managing their social, environmental and economic impacts.
The labelling scheme helps hotels cut costs and increase sales, by improved sustainability.
To gain Travelife Gold certification the hotel must meet their 150 sustainability criteria. This includes environmental issues, such as minimising their waste and use of energy, water and chemicals; as well as taking positive action on social issues, such as employee welfare, working with the local community, child protection and human rights. They must also show how they are helping to support local businesses and protect local traditions and wildlife.

Travelife is an international certification system, promoting sustainability within the tourism industry. It helps tour operators, hotels and accommodations to manage and monitor their social and environmental impacts, as well as communicate their achievements to customers. It is an easy to use sustainability system which provides members with a practical framework to improve their business.
Travelife provides a range of support to help its members prepare for their independent audit. Hotel and accommodation members whose on-site audit shows they fulfil the requirements of the Travelife sustainability criteria will achieve a Gold award. They can then feature on the Travelife Collection website and their award can be used in promotion by hoteliers and tour operators, alongside other recognitions such as their star rating.
