ABOUT GREEN GETAWAYS
Responsible Travel in Australia
Properties listed on GREEN GETAWAYS AUSTRALIA are taking steps towards making tourism accommodation more sustainable, whether water or energy conservation, recycling, or reducing the consumption of natural resources through bulk amenities and eco friendly cleaning.
This means less waste of the world’s precious resources for future generations, as well as cost savings which can be passed on to travellers.
Many of the properties listed on this site are situated in vulnerable areas. We support their efforts to undertake environmental management plans and minimize their impact, while contributing as positively as they can to rehabilitation and landcare programs.
We support responsible tourism by promoting accommodation which provides facilities which enable travellers to minimize energy use, conserve water, recycle and reduce waste.
We believe that all of us have an ethical responsibility to treat all guests and staff, regardless of race, gender or sexual orientation with dignity, with fair wages and respect for worker’s rights.
We do our very best to encourage the businesses that we deal with to be as open as possible about their environmental claims. We could all do better – there is no denying this fact. We don’t accept listings from properties unless they meet our basic criteria and are able to publicly display their environmental initiatives, enabling travellers to judge for themselves, rather than hiding behind a logo or badge. Unfortunately, logos can often mean very little to travellers seeking to find the actual environmental credentials of a property. Every property listed on our website publicly displays their environmental policy.
We do our best to maintain the accuracy of the information displayed on this site, but please let us know if there is an environmental issue with any of the properties listed.
Green Getaways offers the best collection of sustainable accommodation and responsible travel experiences in Australia.
