How can you tell who is green?

After checking credible third-party references, your best bet is likely to call the hotel and ask directly what their policy is. If they are not thinking about environmental issues before, they will be after your call!

Here are some things you might want to consider when inquiring about a specific hotel’s environmental commitment:

Is the hotel in a certification program? If so, what was the hotel’s score? How does the certification program rate hotels? Do they do an on-site audit or is the program voluntary?
What is the hotel doing to reduce its energy, water and resource consumption?
What types of products are sourced and where are they sourced from?
What is their waste-reduction policy? How do they deal with hazardous waste?
How is the hotel involved in the local community?
