EcoGrade’s accuracy rests on the foundation of accurate reporting across various sustainability categories for multiple regions. The revolutionary tool tackles the challenge of sourcing reliable data on buildings, energy suppliers and transport systems, ensuring that the numbers EcoGrade present are factual, not fictional—something our competitors often overlook.

Why Join the EcoGrade Sustainability Programme?

The Sustainability Programme utilizes EcoGrade, which offers automatic scores for apartment listings using vetted, government-approved data sources. The Sustainability Programme invites apartment suppliers to update and fine-tune the information used for their properties, thereby ensuring precision and relevance.

EcoGrade has received recognition at the Business Travel Awards Europe 2023, winning the Achievement in Sustainability for Accommodation Providers. “The judges commended this provider for developing a tool that utilizes artificial intelligence and measures energy efficiency, energy consumption, green energy suppliers and green transportation to provide an overall score for each unit, allowing customers to make carbon-conscious decisions at the time of booking” (BTN Europe, 2023)

The outcome? A Verified EcoGrade Score for each certified listing, showcasing the apartment suppliers’ commitment to a more sustainable world.

By joining the EcoGrade Sustainability Programme, not only do apartment suppliers to a greener future but also secure a competitive advantage in the market. By having the sustainability rating for each property visible, larger corporate clients who have to meet their own environmental goals will be encouraged to book these apartments. Guests, from corporate travelers to families alike, will also take into consideration the sustainability rating.

As the landscape of corporate responsibility evolves, aligning with environmentally transparency is becoming an essential driver of success.
