They currently offer rebates to students, teachers and conference attendees, actively support major charities, and are a carbon neutral, environmentally friendly organization, through their partnership with Carbonfund.org. HotelsCombined.com also developed the Green Hotels and Responsible Tourism Initiative, an educational resource designed to help travelers, hotel owners and local communities develop environmental, social, and cultural sustainability by increasing awareness of responsible tourism, providing education, and showcasing best green practices for hotels. The Green Hotels and Responsible Tourism Initiative was developed in partnership with respected tourism sustainability and hotel greening experts, Dr. Sonya Graci and Jacqueline Kuehnel. Understanding how transportation, accommodation, and excursions impact local communities and the environment will enable each of us to take action and help to minimize environmental damage, maintain historical and national heritage, and assist in the economic development of local communities for future generations to enjoy. The goals of the Green Hotels and Responsible Tourism Initiative are: • To educate and raise awareness of the benefits as well as the potential negative impacts of tourism. • To provide information and guidance based on academic studies, research, and best practices to help reduce your carbon ‘footprint’. • To highlight the benefits of sustainability and offer suggestions that will help you become a ‘greener’ hotel or a more responsible traveler. • To showcase those hotels that already have adopted green policies and highlight the positive effects on their business. • To engage, share, and encourage each other to be part of the solution. So if environmentally-sustainable traveling is important to you, and it should be, log onto HotelsCombined.com to find the best eco-focused hotels and excursions for your summer travel plans.
