In autumn 2017 stakeholders in Germany launched the green label “Grünes Blatt” for sustainable travel services. The label helps booking a sustainable holiday for consumers in the consultation by a travel agency and offer a comparison system in the booking engine “Bistro Portal”. This project ‘Green Travel Transformation GTT’ in the Bistro Portal, mostly used in Germany, enables travel agencies for the first time to see and book hotels with a sustainability certification. Members of this project are stakeholders like DER Touristik and Thomas Cook, Futouris e.V. and universities like LEUPHANA Universität Lüneburg supported by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research in Berlin.
