Maryland Green Travel

Maryland Green Travel

Maryland Green Travel is a voluntary, self-certification program that recognizes tourism businesses committed to improving their operations in order to reduce their environmental impact. The program helps businesses evaluate their procedures, set goals and take specific actions towards environmental sustainability.

Increasingly travelers are making their travel decisions based on sustainable practices that reduce our carbon footprint. Maryland Green Travel will promote those businesses that undergo self-certification. Businesses that are part of the program will be given Maryland Green Travel identification on the official state tourism site,, which receives more than 2 million unique visitors a year.
