Certification for rental and accommodation properties
RRS is a sustainability certification body with a program designed specifically for owners of rental properties (long and short lets), small guest houses, Serviced Apartment businesses and B&Bs.
We are here to help you on your journey to adopt sustainable practices and/or acknowledge your current commitment. Our certifications include a list of compliance standards to work with, support services, a personal manager and the audit all for one price (please see below).
We are members of the Global Sustainable Tourism Council (GSTC) and the International Ecotourism Society.
Tourism is experiencing a massive shift towards sustainability that supports the global move towards addressing climate change. For example, Booking.com research (2019) showed 73% of travellers intend to choose sustainable accommodation, whilst 72% say they find it difficult to identify sustainable accommodation due to a lack of clear eco-labelling. The certified badge we award provides clarity and tangible proof that your property is run using sustainable practices, giving you a competitive edge over the competition and allowing prospective guests to make informed decisions.
"I am so happy to have the Responsible Rental Solutions certification. It enhances what I’m trying to do at Pearl, which is to create a space in nature for people who are into yoga, wellness and respecting the environment. The certification helps me to attract this kind of traveller and they have appreciated the extra sustainable measures which Lucy has helped me to implement. Lucy was very easy to work with and advised me about other areas where I could make improvements and also at how to effectively communicate this message to my guests. A great partnership!"
