The first sustainability standard for short-term rentals globally.

Show travellers, owners, employees, regulators and investors that you are committed to sustainability.

Our unique proprietary platform streamlines the auditing process allowing us to vet short-term rentals anywhere in the world using GPS-verified evidence.

Why your short-term rental needs a sustainability badge

Aside from the moral imperative, there are many benefits to adopting a People, Planet, Profit strategy for your vacation rental business: more bookings, lower costs, retaining owners, satisfying investors, regulators and employees, and reducing the environmental impact of the tourism industry.

Having one common standard for our industry means that we can give travellers the power to choose rental companies that are truly committed to sustainability.
