Hey all!

Im working with conservation and workers groups in Australia on creating standards so that Hotels can be certified as ethical.

For the certification we are thinking of including decent wages and conditions for workers, low levels of waste and energy efficiency for now. And possibly including provision of fair trade products as something to bring online later.

What do you think should be included?

Thanks!

Ben

p.s. I'd also be keen to know if you think its a good idea in general. We are thinking of calling it 'The First Star: Ethical Hotels'.

I like this idea a lot - would influence where I stay for sure. (Triple bottom line style rating!) :)
