Tourist accommodations have to compromise their overall sustainable initiatives in order to guarantee a certain level of quality for their guests. ECO LABEL tourist accommodation criteria have sufficient flexibility to ensure appropriate guest satisfaction and contain effective guidelines for hotels and campsites seeking to reduce their environmental impact.
Tourist accommodation facilities that want to provide eco-labeled services to their guests must comply with the mandatory criteria set by the ECO LABEL program and exceed a certain score within the scope of optional criteria. The criteria mainly focus on environmental factors such as excess water and energy consumption, waste management and use of toxic substances.
Tourist facilities have to create a defined environmental action plan to determine their environmental performance and monitor their progress. The ECO LABEL labeling program helps facilities set the right targets for their environmental participation, establish an environmental policy and action program, establish an environmental management system with an assessment process, and consequently measure the impact of their activities.
Due to poorly managed energy consumption, tourist accommodation often consume large amounts of energy, which contributes to the generation of carbon emissions. In order to reduce excess energy use, ECO LABEL criteria require preventive maintenance of the devices used. Water heaters, air conditioners and air-based heat pumps must comply with the lowest energy class. Similarly, class A in lighting should be passed. The temperature in common areas and rooms should be adjusted with automatic shut-off options, no heating or air conditioning should be used outdoors. As far as possible, all of the energy should be supplied from renewable energy sources.
Excessive water consumption in the facilityIt must be preceded by absolutely. The ECO LABEL criteria set requirements for the average water flow rate of taps and toilet flushing, and offers solutions to minimize the amount of wasted water. In addition, sheets and towels should not be changed every day, unless expressly requested by guests.
