About Green Hotelier
Launched in 1996, the original publication was in magazine format and sought to spread the word on leading initiatives within the industry whilst also providing practical advice to hoteliers looking to imitate them. The world has changed a lot since then, and so has Green Hotelier. The website form of the publication was refreshed in July 2012, providing anyone interested in sustainability within the hotel sector with easy-to-navigate, comprehensive and fresh information, practical advice and tools.
