Audubon Green Leaf Eco-Rating for Hotels

Audubon Green Leaf Eco-Rating Program for Hotels helps all types of accommodation facilities reduce operating expenses and increase market share, while improving the environment. The education and eco-rating program is offered jointly by Audubon International and TerraChoice Environmental Marketing, Inc.

Any type of accommodation facility internationally, including hotels, motels, resorts, and bed and breakfast facilities can apply.

Members conduct a self-evaluation of their environmental performance that covers four key areas: energy efficiency, resource conservation, pollution prevention, and environmental management. Based on the results, the hotel receives a confidential report that suggests ways to improve. It is also awarded an eco-rating of from one to five "green leaves" that may be used in marketing and promotion.

Within a year of awarding the rating, hotels receive an on-site independent audit to verify its environmental best practices. Hotels can increase their eco-ratings by implementing a variety of environmental measures.

Audubon Partners for the Environment Program

The Audubon Partners for the Environment Program engages people from all walks of life in protecting and enhancing the land, water, wildlife, and natural resources around them. Audubon Partners make a commitment to complete at least one environmental improvement project each year and report their results to Audubon International. Each completed project receives an award to recognize Audubon Partners for their efforts to foster environmental awareness and good stewardship.

This program is a perfect fit for businesses and other organizations that want to do something good for the environment, and would like help and recognition along the way. A special program for schools and youth groups offers environmental education that helps kids really make a difference.
