Host & Stay Launches ManageGreen: Elevating Sustainable Practices in Holiday Home Management

Host & Stay, a trailblazer in the holiday let management industry, proudly announces the launch of ManageGreen within their property management packages.

Dedicated to fostering sustainability and conscious travel, ManageGreen represents Host & Stay’s commitment to environmental responsibility and signifies an important step forward in reshaping the landscape of holiday let and short-term rental management.

Host & Stay recognises the need to mitigate the environmental impact of the short term rental sector. ManageGreen is an initiative driven by a conscious effort to bring sustainability to the forefront of holiday let management, while also providing a multitude of benefits for property owners and guests alike.

The ManageGreen offering includes four key pillars: partnerships and carbon offsetting, sustainability badges, energy efficient solutions, and conscious travel guides.

As part of Host & Stay’s Environmental, Social and Governance strategy, ManageGreen was created on the principle of collaboration with like-minded, environmentally conscious partners. Through partnerships with brands such as Who Gives A Crap, Wonky Coffee, EnviroRental, Eight Versa, Ecologi and GreenTheUK, Host & Stay are ensuring that their operations are aligned with sustainable practices.

By replacing consumables with more responsible alternatives and working to eliminate single-use plastics, Host & Stay is making tangible strides towards reducing its ecological footprint. Through the partnership with Who Gives A Crap, hundreds of trees have been saved from being cut down each year as all holiday lets cleaned by Host & Stay have changed to recycled toilet paper. Furthermore, Host & Stay are actively choosing to support a supplier who donates 50% of their profits to help build toilets and improve sanitation in countries with poor sanitation infastructure.

Host & Stay is dedicated to minimising its carbon footprint through proactive measures and meaningful investments. By collaborating with local and global initiatives, they are focused on tree planting and reforestation with the end goal to mitigate Host & Stay’s carbon emissions to the fullest extent possible. This proactive approach is just the start of how Host & Stay’s leadership plans to address the pressing challenges of climate change.

Host & Stay’s ManageGreen offering also works with Sustonica, the first sustainability badge specific for short-term rentals. According to’s 2023 Sustainable Travel Report, 76% of global travellers say that they want to travel more sustainably over the coming 12 months and 43% are willing to pay extra for travel options offering a sustainable certification. With the global demand for sustainable travel options on the rise, Sustonica addresses a critical need in the market and provides Host & Stay guests with the assurance that their choices align with their values. Plus, with more guests searching for sustainable properties, this means that Host & Stay homeowners are more likely to see their properties appeal to a wider audience.

Another part of Host & Stay’s ManageGreen service is resiAIR™, a cutting-edge technology designed to optimise energy usage. Using WiFi-enabled sensors, resiAIR™ intelligently regulates lighting and heating systems based on guest occupancy resulting in significant cost savings, reduced emissions, and enhanced guest comfort. Designed exclusively for Host & Stay property owners, resiAIR™ can save property owners up to 32% on their property energy costs. From temperature to humidity, noise to occupancy, resiAIR™ captures it all so property owners can quickly and easily benefit from efficiencies and cost savings.

As part of their ManageGreen initiative, Host & Stay empower guests to make informed and sustainable travel decisions through its comprehensive digital travel guides. From highlighting public transportation routes and EV charging spots to promoting more responsible activities and supporting local businesses, their online guides provide guests with the resources needed to minimise their environmental impact whilst maximising their experience. By prioritising community engagement and the environment, Host & Stay are redefining UK staycations for the modern conscious traveller.
