The United Nations Intergovernmental Climate Change Panel (IPCC), issued a report in October of 2018, which states that the world needs to limit global warming to pre-industrial levels of 1.5°C within just over a decade, and floods and droughts beyond that.
The report insists that there is a risk of extremely high temperatures. It can be said then, that the increased awareness of the environment among travelers is a change in consciousness based on the climate situation of the global environment. It’s not a surprise then, to plan one’s own sustainable journey or look at the websites of hotel and tour companies to see if they are really sustainable.
In order to make sustainable travel and tourism searches easier, several sites exist which are dedicated to information sharing and booking possibilities for eco and sustainable tourism.

I Like Local is a Netherlands based social venture booking site that was founded in 2013 which specialises in local activities. It is intended to provide travelers with a unique local activity experience and works to provide a direct income to locals in Asia and Africa.
That’s why Bookdifferent.com was founded in 2012 in the Netherlands with the desire to help people choose better travel options.
Bookdifferent.com is able to confirm if the accommodation is a sustainable accommodation in terms of being recognized by eco-labels such as Green Destinations, which have been successful in evaluating their destinations for sustainability performance. These ecolabels are publicly available standards which are limited to those that have third-party audits and onsite assessments.
Zerobnb was founded by NESTE in Finland. Neste was announced as the world’s leading producer of renewable diesel, on International Day of Climate Change 2018.
Airbnb, the world’s largest accommodation sharing site, seems to have been missing one very important category: sustainable accommodation! The Zerobnb site is unique in that it is focused strictly on sustainable vacation homes. It’s available for a limited time only until Airbnb creates its own sustainable category.
