Hostelling International offering climate neutral overnight stays

Since April 2012, Hostelling International (HI) allows their guests to book their overnight stays climate neutrally. This option has already been implemented in 14 countries (Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Switzerland, Spain, France, Scotland, England & Wales, Iceland, Italy, the Netherlands, New Zealand and Portugal). Hostels in 10 further countries are presently calculated by myclimate and will soon be available online too. The contributions collected go toward international Gold Standard projects of myclimate. Furthermore, HI charges a donation of 0.10 GBP for its own sustainability fund which allows the realisation of various internal climate protection measures.

Swiss Youth Hostels have been offering this service since many years: Once more, Switzerland takes the lead in terms of climate protection. myclimate is looking forward to this further and excellent cooperation.
