our MISSION

Creating regenerative impact through travel

OUR BELIEF

We all have the

power to do good

Regenerative Travel was built as a community that supports hotels as they continually seek to embody the values of regeneration. 

We promote the continual coevolution of each hotel by fostering best practice sharing, accountability through data collection and analysis, and by bringing diverse perspectives to the forefront.

The only way we will be able to heal the earth is to improve our capability to be in relationship with ourselves and our communities.

How we create impact

Our hotel ecosystem enables each independent property to amplify their impact.

Accountability

By collecting and analyzing our set of Regenerative Metrics, hotels avoid greenwashing, establish benchmarks, and hold themselves accountable to their goal of increasing social and environmental impact.

Best Practice

We connect the individual actions of member hotels to broader frameworks such as the Sustainable Development Goals and IPCC climate targets. By highlighting practical tools, key insights, and diverse perspectives, small independent businesses can take on the world’s big challenges.

Coevolution

Hotel members have access to a supportive community of like-minded peers as they grow and change. Team members from across the hotel can connect with their peers at other hotels, making multiple connections so that the collective can be better at what we do throughout our entire organizations.

Our Standards

Each Regenerative Travel hotel is selected to join the collection based on their dedication to environmental and social impact. Our hotels embody the following standards & criteria:

Regenerative Metrics

Hospitality is increasingly saturated with brands claiming sustainability credentials and conscious consumers are demanding more detail about business’ social and environmental practices than ever before. 

 

Regenerative Travel helps hotels measure and communicate their impact through our metrics that demonstrate how your property contributes to the community and place where you are located. Our standards connect to broader frameworks such as the UN Sustainable Development Goals and B Corp certification, but are customized for small hotels.
