The Green Hospitality Programme

It is the only Irish hospitality environmental certification programme that is recognised internationally, and is now one of the most successful certification Programmes in Europe.“Greening Irish Hospitality” is the focus of the Green Hospitality Programme. This is a voluntary programme that demonstrates leadership in environmental management within the hospitality sector. Members of the programme can attain green certification at a number of levels based on the implementation of a number of strict environmental criteria. The GHP offers an incremental certification (3 stages) allowing members to commence the certification process at a pace that suits their needs and ability. Certified members are recognised both nationally and internationally as committed to actively managing their environmental footprint and are taking specific actions to minimise energy consumption, water consumption and reduce waste sent to landfill. Certification allows members to market their business as green.
