The World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) unveiled the verification scheme for Hotel Sustainability Basics (Basics).

WTTC has launched the Basics verification scheme at ITB Berlin, allowing tourist accommodation providers globally, irrespective of their size, to commence their sustainability journey.

This industry-wide initiative is a globally recognised set of criteria that hotels must implement at a minimum to drive responsible and sustainable tourism.

Basics is a result of a clear demand from influential hotel brands worldwide and serves as an achievable starting point, encouraging hospitality businesses to begin their sustainability journeys and redefine sustainability non-negotiables in the industry.

Basics consist of 12 key criteria, which all hotels can implement as a bare minimum, providing a foundation for more complex sustainability schemes and greater sustainability.

Additionally, Basics is recognised by the Sustainable Hospitality Alliance as the starting point for a net-positive industry, and the Pathway to Net Positive Hospitality's latest version endorses it.
