LOS ANGELES, CA – Green Globe Certification launched the new Green Globe Library to promote the sustainability achievements of its members.

The Green Globe Library features case studies from Green Globe’s diverse membership including eco-resorts and urban convention centers. The case studies are researched and written by the members themselves in collaboration with Green Globe Certification. The main aim is to help members begin to communicate their own sustainability achievements in their own voice.

While the sustainability movement across the world has recently been dominated by global climate change issues, the member case studies are designed to put a human face on real work being done at the community level.

Beyond the environmental indicators of energy and water usage and waste production and recycling are many human stories. These stories reflect the efforts made by the workers and managers at tourism resorts and other travel companies to improve and protect their local communities while solving real challenges through cooperative and innovative actions.

GreenGlobe CEO, Mr. Guido Bauer said, “We are now on a journey to collect as many member case studies as we can to fill our library with significant and important stories that demonstrate the benefits of sustainable practice. It is important that the information that is held in our library is generated by the members themselves so that we can hear in their own voices a commitment to people and place.”

Green Globe Certification has launched its library with contributions authored by Hamanasi Adventure Dive Resort, Belize; Club Med Turkoise, Turks and Caicos; and Leipziger Messe, Germany. Green Globe Certification is currently working with other members to continue to expand the library’s resources.
