TUI Environmental Champion 2018

Every year since 1996, TUI has been singling out hotels that work particularly hard to protect the environment and exercise their social responsibility. TUI’s purpose with this label is to enhance hoteliers’ awareness and commitment around sustainability. To participate, hotels must hold a valid Sustainability Certificate recognised by the Global Sustainable Tourism Council (GSTC). The assessment additionally takes account of what guests say about the hotel’s environmental performance. The TUI Environmental Holly is awarded to the TUI Environmental Champion with the highest score. Already visible to holidaymakers when reading the catalogue, this distinction flags up the environmental and social commitment displayed by hotels.
