ManageGreen: Elevating sustainable practices in holiday home management

Host & Stay, a trailblazer in the holiday let management industry, has launched ManageGreen within its 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 including Who Gives A Crap, Wonky Coffee, EnviroRental, Eight Versa, Ecologi and GreenTheUK, Host & Stay is ensuring 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 its 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 is actively choosing to support a supplier that donates 50 per cent of profits to help build toilets and improve sanitation in countries with poor infrastructure.



Host & Stay is dedicated to minimising its carbon footprint through proactive measures and meaningful investments.

By collaborating with local and global initiatives, it is focused on tree planting and reforestation, with the end goal of mitigating 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 per cent of global travellers say they want to travel more sustainably over the coming 12 months, with 43 per cent 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, providing Host & Stay guests with the assurance their choices align with their values.

And with more guests searching for sustainable properties, this means 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 per cent 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 its ManageGreen initiative, Host & Stay empowers 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, its online guides provide guests with the resources needed to minimise their environmental impact while maximising their experience.

By prioritising community engagement and the environment, Host & Stay is redefining UK staycations for the conscious modern traveller.

Dale Smith, Host & Stay chief executive, says: “We are thrilled to introduce ManageGreen, which is testament to our unwavering commitment to sustainability and responsible tourism.

“With ManageGreen, we are not only raising the bar for holiday home management but also inspiring positive change within this industry and beyond.”

By embracing sustainability as a core value, Host & Stay is setting a new standard for holiday home management, demonstrating that environmental responsibility and exceptional hospitality can go hand-in-hand.
