LOS ANGELES, California – Green Globe Certification today unveiled its new Green Globe App for Apple mobile devices. The App is available as a free download at the Apple App store under the Travel category.
The Green Globe App is the only mobile application for Apple iPads, iPhones, and iPods that allows travelers to instantly search for sustainable resorts, hotels, conference centers, attractions, tour experiences, and wedding options. The Green Globe App delivers photos and descriptions of Green Globe-certified business, with direct links to booking, views in Google Earth, and YouTube videos.
Green Globe Certification CEO, Guido Bauer said: “Green Globe is the leader in certification of sustainable travel and tourism businesses, and our members are located in many of the world’s most exciting destinations and cities.
“The App is ideal for travelers on the go, who want to track down accommodation that has the highest ‘green’ credentials. Also for business travelers and conference organizers, the App quickly locates conference facilities for ‘green’ meetings. We have even included a search function for couples looking to plan a wedding in beautiful destinations which are giving back to the local community.
“All travel and tourism businesses accessible via the Green Globe App are actively contributing to a better future for the local people and the place they live.”
The Green Globe App delivers hotels and resort and other tour options that meet the highest level of sustainable management and operation. All Green Globe members are rigorously certified under 40 criteria, which have been accepted globally as the definition of sustainable travel and tourism.
