May 14, 2014 Responsible Tourism No Comments Email Email

EarthCheck, the world’s leading environmental benchmarking and certification program, has announced a partnership with Bookdifferent.com.

After realising over $100 million in savings for EarthCheck clients, EarthCheck has turned to finding funds to support scientific research. By partnering with Bookdifferent.com, EarthCheck will provide consumers with the ability to both book accommodation and support research into the big sustainability challenges facing the planet.

The EarthCheck Research Institute supports major research projects, funds primary and secondary school programs, and helps hotels around the world to reduce their environmental footprint.295373_num822816_600x600

Basitaan Fronik, Chairman at Bookdifferent.com, said, “We believe there is a strong awareness among leisure and business travellers alike for sustainability programs, such as EarthCheck, and that this will continue to grow.”

He noted that Bookdifferent.com lets consumers book a hotel at a guaranteed low price while supporting charities by donating part of the booking revenue.

“Listing EarthCheck members and supporting the not-for-profit EarthCheck Research Institute as one of our charity partners, aligns with our goal of making the world a better place.”

Doctor Susanne Becken, Professor of Sustainable Tourism at Griffith University, supports the partnership. She said, “I can’t wait to book my next holiday through Bookdifferent.com and support my colleagues.”

“At the EarthCheck Research Institute we turn research outcomes into successful new products, services and technologies. Our work is a collaboration between businesses and researchers, and it maximises the benefits of research through commercialisation and technology transfer.”

CEO and Founder of EarthCheck, Mr Stewart Moore, said, “Since 1997, we have helped businesses, communities and governments all over the world to measure their environmental footprint and discover ways to reduce their impact on the Earth.”

“At EarthCheck, we have found the link between sustainable business practices and business performance. We help various organisations to understand this link and maintain a triple bottom line.”

Bookdifferent.com now has the EarthCheck Research Institute listed as a charity that consumers can choose to donate to. Consumers can access the site at earthcheck.bookdifferent.com, or through the EarthCheck website:www.earthcheck.org.
