How does En-Route to Sustainability work?

Together, we'll conduct a thorough Gap Analysis Audit, identifying areas for improvement in your sustainability practices. You'll gain strategic insights into your current practices and a roadmap for targeted improvements.


We will streamline your sustainability processes, saving you time and resources in the achievement of this and future audits.



We'll ensure that your teams have the knowledge, skills and confidence required to implement your sustainability strategies  by providing access to our flexible online Training Courses covering important topics such as environmental management, social and community engagement, equality and diversity, animal welfare, safeguarding children and protection and promotion of biodiversity. 

Once we've gathered all of the information from your reporting templates and from our audit, we´ll create a customized report with a series of tailored recommendations and practical actions so that you can start or accelerate progress.  Depending on whether you have chosen our STANDARD or PREMIUM option, this customized report will also include Standard Operating Procedures and Guides for Experts which include more advanced strategies and alternatives. 



Benefit from personalized guidance from accredited GSTC auditor and our support team, ensuring expert advice that can be tailored to your hotel's unique context.
