Global Short Term Rental Industry ESG Initative

REST from QIA Services

The short-term rental industry has announced the launch of a new global initiative to drive industry best practice for sustainability.

The Global Short-Term Rental Sustainability Research Project has been created to develop a ‘united voice’ and will assist the industry in determining where they are at in terms of sustainability best practice.

Associations involved in the project include APAR, ASTRA, ASTRHO, ASSC, European Holiday Home Association, Short Term Accommodation Association and VRMA.

Each association, which is made up of short-term rental property owners, managers, and hosts working together to advocate for fair and effective regulations and licensing for short term rentals, will leverage industry insight collated via a survey to help establish a robust set of objectives and guidance, to be used as the go to resource for short term rental business owners for sustainability benchmarking.
