Touch Stay: championing sustainability in the hospitality industry

The travel and hospitality industry, while fostering exploration and connection, also carries a significant environmental impact. Recognising this responsibility, Touch Stay is taking a proactive stance. We've acknowledged the climate emergency and joined Tourism Declares, an initiative dedicated to reducing carbon emissions within the tourism sector.

Leading by example: transparency and action

At Touch Stay, we believe in leading by example. We've adopted a transparent approach by calculating our carbon footprint. This includes emissions from our remote work practices and any necessary business travel.

  • To offset these emissions, we've partnered with Ecologi, a respected reforestation organisation known for its commitment to responsible tree planting.
  • Through Ecologi, we plant enough trees each month to neutralise our carbon footprint.
  • Our goal is to become carbon negative within the next two years, further minimising our environmental impact.

Empowering hosts: sustainable practices for every vacation rental

We understand that sustainability is a shared responsibility. That's why we've equipped Touch Stay users with tools to promote eco-friendly practices in their vacation rentals.

The Making a Difference section:

This innovative addition to the Touch Stay guidebook allows hosts to highlight sustainable features of their properties.

    • From energy-efficient appliances to locally sourced amenities, hosts can showcase their commitment to environmental responsibility.
    • This empowers guests to make eco-conscious choices during their stay, fostering a ripple effect of positive environmental impact.
