In recent years, the so-called “green” hotels which try to minimize pollution of the environment by respecting environmental rules, are gaining more popularity in the world.
Radica Zekovic Nikolic, the coordinator of the program “Development of low-carbon tourism in Montenegro”, said that the potential for the development of all forms of sustainable, green tourism in Montenegro is very high due to the preservation and availability of natural resources. She added that Montenegro has an increased number of green hotels, mostly new ones. These hotels are less harmful to the environment and energy efficient. They recycle waste, use renewable energy sources, and are suitable for health tourism. Thanks to all of this, they can do business all year round and in that way increase competitiveness.
Hotel “Lighthouse” from Herceg Novi is the first winner of the Travelife Gold certificate in Montenegro, which is a guarantee of a responsible business and attitude towards the environment, employees, the local community and tourists.
