Green Lodging Certification


Greening your hotel, motel or B&B is more than just good for the environment. It’s also good for business. Not only does being a "green" accommodation help attract more visitors who want to live an environmentally conscious lifestyle, it can also help you save money and create a healthier workplace for your employees.  

The Department of Energy & Environmental Protection (DEEP) and the Connecticut Office of Tourism offer a certification program for hotels called “Connecticut Green Lodging — Accommodating You and Our Environment.”   

This self-certification program is based on accumulating points associated with environmental practices at your facility. The points are documented in the Connecticut Green Lodging Self-Certification Workbook.
