Responsible Rental Solutions

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 adopt sustainable practices to drive positive change and help you demonstrate clear authentic credentials of your commitment to eco-friendly standards. 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) as recommended by Booking.com and the International Ecotourism Society.

Do travelers look at how ‘green’ a property is before they book?

Tourism is experiencing a massive shift towards sustainability that supports the global move towards addressing climate change. For example, Booking.com research (2022) showed 81% of global travellers say sustainable travel is important to them, whilst 57% say they feel better when they stay in sustainable accommodation  when is shows 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. The certification helps me to attract the conscience traveller and they often appreciated the extra sustainable measures. I hugely value our great partnership and advise Lucy gives me every year."
