Florida Green Lodging Program
What it takes to become green
Launched in 2004, the Florida Green Lodging Program is a voluntary initiative of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) that designates and recognizes lodging facilities that make a commitment to conserve and protect Florida’s natural resources.
The Florida Green Lodging Program is administered primarily online. To become designated, facilities must conduct a thorough property assessment and implement a specified number of environmental practices in 6 areas of sustainable operations:
Communication and Education (Customers, Employees, Public)
The Florida Green Lodging designation is valid for 3 years from date of issuance. To maintain designation, properties are required to submit environmental performance data (water, waste, energy) annually.
Properties must also implement at least 2 new environmental practices from any of the 6 areas of sustainable operations. More information.To Florida Ecotourism Home
