Greenleaders Program

Green Luxury Villas - GreenLeaders TripAdvisor

TripAdvisor GreenLeaders are properties that are leading the industry with their green efforts. There are four TripAdvisor GreenLeader badge levels:
bronze, silver, gold and platinum.

If you qualify as a TripAdvisor GreenLeader, TripAdvisor will place a celebratory badge on your property listing. This badge will also appear on search results for hotels in your area. When travelers click on your GreenLeader badge, they’ll be able to see the full list of all green practices currently in place at your property.

Badge levels are determined by a property’s overall level of participation in environmentally friendly activities. The TripAdvisor GreenLeaders program looks at the variety and impact of an accommodation’s green practices, both simple and advanced, during the application process.

Program Integrity

TripAdvisor is committed to ensuring the integrity of the TripAdvisor GreenLeaders program. We have adopted a three-step approach that includes traveler feedback and independent audits.


  • Travelers can see a full list of your practices by clicking on your property’s TripAdvisor GreenLeader badge or icon. This ensures that travelers can see exactly which green practices they can expect at your property.


  • As the world’s largest travel site, TripAdvisor places great value on the opinions of travelers. Travelers will be invited to comment on the green practices of TripAdvisor GreenLeaders
    and TripAdvisor GreenPartners. They will also be able to report on false information, in instances where a traveler’s experience does not match a property’s claims. This feedback will be monitored by TripAdvisor’s Responsible Travel team and, if necessary, will trigger a third party audit.


  • TripAdvisor has partnered with an independent expert sustainability organization to conduct audits of the TripAdvisor GreenLeaders program. In addition to audits triggered by traveler feedback, there will also be a set of audits conducted every year of applying and participating properties.
