SLH launches 'Considerate Collection' for sustainable luxury hotels

Small Luxury Hotels of the World (SLH) announces the launch of Considerate Collection, a community of actively sustainable luxury hotels. 

It also announces new sustainable initiatives.

Considerate Collection debuts with 26 hotels in 16 countries, each meeting the highest criteria in sustainability. 

SLH has collaborated with key sustainable travel and luxury hospitality players to create a trusted and transparent framework. 

These include Global Sustainable Tourism Council (GSTC), the United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO); and Greenview, whose platform is the only GSTC-recognised sustainable tourism management tool.

Daniel Luddington, VP of Development, Small Luxury Hotels of the World said "We've carefully curated the Considerate Collection to spotlight luxury boutique hotels for their sustainability efforts, making it easier for customers and the travel trade to make better-considered choices."

Staying in small, independent hotels goes hand in hand with travelling sustainably and all SLH hotels are already steeped in the many facets of sustainable hospitality, so we haven't had to look far outside of our portfolio for the launch collection."

Criteria for the Considerate Collection align with the GSTC Criteria across three key pillars ensuring all the hotels are Community Minded, Cultural Custodians and Environmentally Conscious. 

These pillars are all underpinned by a strong sustainability management system.

Each hotel within the Considerate Collection either has been certified by a GSTC Accredited Certification Body or certified to a GSTC Recognized Standard, or has passed an assessment by the SLH Sustainability Advisory Panel with review by the GSTC. 

Randy Durband, CEO, Global Sustainable Tourism Council said: "We're delighted to collaborate with SLH to devise a robust framework, consistent with GSTC measures but uniquely matched for all luxury boutique hotels."

SLH is making it easier for travel trade and customers to identify each Considerate Collection hotel by featuring them within a specific section on the website www.slh.com/considerate. 

SLH currently has a luxury hotel portfolio of over 520 hotels in 90 countries.
