Beyond Green recently welcomed the addition of seven new member properties, marking a significant expansion for the brand. Among these additions are the brand’s inaugural properties in Colombia and Zimbabwe, as well as multiple new additions in Spain and India, further solidifying Beyond Green’s position as a leader in conscious travel.

With a global portfolio now spanning 20 countries, Beyond Green, which operates under the stewardship of Preferred Travel Group, continues to experience remarkable growth, attracting hotels, lodges and resorts of all sizes united by a shared commitment to sustainability. Each new member property offers discerning travellers an opportunity to explore and book authentic, environmentally responsible experiences, with a mandate to adhere to over 50 sustainability indicators aligned with global standards and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

“I am thrilled to announce the expansion of our global portfolio with the addition of these seven new member properties,” said Lindsey Ueberroth, CEO of Beyond Green. “As we continue to grow, we remain steadfast in our mission to promote travel as a force for good, guided by our pillars of sustainability – Nature, Community, and Culture. Together, we can create a brighter, more sustainable future for all.”

Beyond Green’s newest properties include:

Dromoland Castle Hotel: Nestled in the heart of the Irish hills, Dromoland Castle Hotel, a 16th-century estate, seamlessly blends historic charm with modern amenities while upholding a strong commitment to sustainability. The castle’s lavish decor, stunning gardens, challenging golf course, and exceptional dining experiences are complemented by a dedication to waste reduction, with a notable decrease in food waste from 1.12kg per sleeper in 2022 to .76kg in 2023, achieved through site composting and staff training. A specialised composter captures 40% of the year’s food waste, creating a peat substitute used on the golf course, gardens, and woodlands. Dromoland Castle prioritises local partnerships, sourcing everything from cheese to herbs and milk from specialist local artisan suppliers. Infrastructure improvements, including energy-efficient LED lighting, a combined heat and power plant, and rainwater usage for garden irrigation, further underscore the property’s commitment to sustainability, ensuring a royal experience with a minimal environmental footprint.
