GDS launches hotel industry’s “first eco-certified program”

Company-wide program includes Travelocity, Sabre and other products

Sabre Eco-Certified Hotel Program, billed as an industry-first program that provides easy access to sustainable travel products and hotels in the portfolio of the technology company Sabre, has been launched this week. The program is the latest development that addresses the trend of travellers’ growing desire for environmentally responsible accommodation. It includes more than 4,700 hotels certified by globally recognised certification programs. The hotel program builds on Travelocity’s Green Hotel Directory, which was launched in 2009.
The hotels participating in the program will be distinguished clearly in Sabre’s GDS. For example, in Sabre Red Workspace, users can shop for and book eco-certified hotels by using an easy-to-spot icon and a unique amenity code.
