Sustainable Travel

Sustainable travel can empower marginalized communities, broaden horizons, preserve cultural heritage, rejuvenate our travel ecosystem and, ultimately, make certain the planet, its people, communities, habitats and wildlife are able to thrive today and into the future. Through product innovation, travel provider partner support and industry collaboration, Booking Holdings and our brands have committed to making sustainable travel easier for millions of customers worldwide.

Sustainable Operations

Running our own operations sustainably is a fundamental pillar of our sustainability strategy. We set high expectations for our travel provider partners and operate our own company according to the same criteria. Booking Holdings also operates sustainably and responsibly by collaborating and leveraging our experiences within our communities. Using our global reach, we are able to participate in hundreds of local initiatives and enhance positive impact for our communities at scale.
