Conceived by AHT, Greener Hotels is a sustainability program to develop effective management tools for tourist accommodations in Argentina. The initiative has been in place for 11 years and includes the annual organization of the "Sustainable Hospitality Contest."
The Association of Tourism Hotels (AHT) is the creator of this initiative that provides hotels and provincial governments with criteria for implementing sustainable practices. These practices include environment conservation and improvement, energy and water management, prevention of atmospheric and acoustic pollution, waste management, and sustainable destination development. There are three certification categories: gold, silver, and bronze.
AHT organizes the "Sustainable Hospitality Contest" to promote these practices, enhance efficiency and innovation, and contribute to the transformation of the Argentine hospitality sector. The contest recognizes and rewards hotels and the best-applied innovation projects that integrate sustainability principles into the hospitality value chain.
The Grand Final and awards ceremony will take place during Hotelga, bringing together prominent professionals and entrepreneurs from the HORECA sector.
Recognized by the Global Sustainable Tourism Council since 2013, "Greener Hotels" ranks among the most prestigious sustainable-tourism certification programs worldwide.
