SUSTAINABILITY SUPPORT FOR ACCOMMODATION PROVIDERS DURING COVID-19

As part of our commitment to supporting sustainable tourism through the COVID-19 pandemic, we are making some of the tools that are normally exclusive to Travelife Members available to any accommodation provider. 

Travelife Members can find their usual resources in the Member Zone, along with information about our membership and certification extensions for properties that are affected by COVID-19.

COVID-19 OPERATIONAL GUIDANCE FOR ACCOMMODATION

In a June COVID-19 Member Survey, over 90% of Travelife hotels said they were concerned about the possible enviromental impacts from implementing coronavirus transmission prevention measures, and over 60% said they were concerned about how to best support their staff and their community during the pandemic.  As a result of these concerns, we have produced the COVID-19 Operational Guidance Kit that includes information to help hoteliers make decisions about how to ensure they are putting the health and safety of people first, whilst minimising their environmental impacts and continuing their important community support work, as well as caring for their staff. 

Because this is such an important issue for the tourism industry, we have made this guidance available to any accommodation provider, and have taken care to ensure it works for any size or type of accommodation in any country.

This guidance is supported by our certification partners, NEPCon Preferred by Nature y Ecotourism Kenya.

COMMUNICATING WITH GUESTS

Your sustainability work and COVID-19 prevention measures will only be effective if you have the support and cooperation of your guests. In this guide we have provided some tips and examples to give you ideas for your own communications.
