Best Green Accommodation Initiative

About the award


Each year through the Green Accommodation Initiative Award, our youth travel accommodation advisory panel, STAY WYSE, recognises the organisation that demonstrates the greatest commitment to reducing its environmental impact, and that makes green travel an important part of their operational activities.


Open to all providers of accommodation for young travellers.


Accommodation providers and travellers alike are increasingly concerned about the impact of travel on the physical and social environment. This award is designed to acknowledge those accommodation providers who are making a conscious effort to include eco-friendly offerings, adapting or transforming their accommodation to minimise the environmental footprint.


The following factors are taken into account when selecting the winner:

Initiatives your organisation has in place to reduce energy consumption and improve sustainability in 2015-16 (energy efficient lighting, key card activated lighting, solar hot water, recycling, etc)

  • The savings and benefits made by incorporating these initiatives
  • Official company green policy.
  • 2016 Winner

    Last year’s winner of the award was YHA New Zealand.
