TRIPADVISOR GREENLEADERS PROGRAMWednesday 22nd April 2015
Antigua, West Indies. April 22, 2015 – The Verandah Resort & Spa, Antigua today proudly announced it has been accepted as a Gold level GreenLeader into the TripAdvisor® GreenLeaders™ program, which helps travelers around the world plan greener trips by highlighting hotels and B&Bs engaging in environmentally-friendly practices.
TripAdvisor GreenLeaders properties have met a set of environmental standards developed for TripAdvisor by a leading environmental consulting firm, with input from expert partners. The more green practices a hotel has in place, the higher its GreenLeader level, which is shown on the property’s listing on the TripAdvisor site.
“The Verandah Resort & Spa is very proud to be recognized as a Gold level GreenLeader by TripAdvisor®. We carefully designed the resort with environmental sustainability in mind, and created a beautiful oasis where guests can enjoy the perfect blend of natural beauty and a relaxing, all-inclusive Caribbean vacation,” said Rob Barrett, Chairman of The Verandah Resort & Spa.
Travelers can now search for accommodations that have TripAdvisor GreenLeaders status on the TripAdvisor site, and view a detailed list of environmentally-friendly practices that they can expect at each location.
“TripAdvisor GreenLeaders are leading the hospitality industry in making efforts to improve their environmental footprint,” said Jenny Rushmore, director of responsible travel at TripAdvisor. “We greatly applaud these hotels and B&Bs, and are pleased to share their eco-friendly practices with our online community of more than 260 million travelers who visit the site each month.”
The TripAdvisor GreenLeaders program was developed in consultation with the United Nations Environment Programme, the U.S. Green Building Council, ENERGY STAR®, and the International Center for Responsible Tourism Canada, among other leading environmental organizations.
