Becoming a TripAdvisor GreenLeader starts here

Make sure you meet the minimum requirements

To qualify, you need to track energy use, have a towel and linen reuse program, recycle, educate staff and guests about your green practices, and use energy efficient light bulbs. Learn more about the minimum requirements.

Every property is unique - big and small. Not all questions will pertain to your property, and that's ok. If you meet the minimum requirements, you already qualify as a GreenPartner. From there, your score will determine your badge level:

  • GreenPartner: minimum requirements
  • Bronze: 30-39%
  • Silver: 40-49%
  • Gold: 50-59%
  • Platinum: 60% and over

Get ready for the survey

Review the survey guide. It will cover all the questions and help you gather what you need. It should only take between 30 - 60 minutes to complete the application. You can save your progress and finish anytime.

To ensure the integrity of the program, TripAdvisor has engaged a third party to conduct audits. If audited, you need to provide evidence of your green practices. Please ensure you can meet audit requirements before answering survey questions: click here to download the survey guide with the requirements.

If you knowingly submit a false application to TripAdvisor GreenLeaders, TripAdvisor reserves the right to post a prominent penalty badge to your property's listing on TripAdvisor, explaining that the property has submitted an application to TripAdvisor GreenLeaders that it is unable to substantiate.
