About us
SUP-Free Certification is a third-party certification and management system to help you eliminate single-use plastic products from your hotel's operations.

To answer the needs of modern businesses, in addition to the certification, we provide a set of support tools and access to a community of like-minded people to help you achieve results faster.

SUP-Free was created in response to increasing demand from accommodation providers who wanted to demonstrate their commitment to waste reduction by undergoing an external verification.

Certification
To comply with one of the below ratings, you must comply with all RELEVANT criteria for that phase.
SUP-Free Customer Facing Areas
Properties achieve their first star when all consumer-facing single-use plastic products are eliminated
SUP-Free Property
Achieving two stars means that there are no single-use plastic products in consumer-facing areas, back of house operations or any other area within your direct influence (e.g. staff canteens, offices, vehicles)
SUP-Free Influencer
Achieving three stars means that the property is compliant with the expectations of Phases one and two, and additionally, the business influences its supply chain, local communities and guests.

Members are able to submit their completed checklist and any supporting documentation online. The SUP-Free team will respond within 30 days to request a time to conduct an online audit.
4
Online audit


Following the submission of your information, our team will respond within 30 days to request a time to conduct an online audit in order to verify your responses and clarify any outstanding questions. The timing for online audits will vary depending on the size of the premises, the quality of information previously submitted, and the additional information required. You should plan for a minimum of 2 hours and up to 4 hours.
5
Your certification
You will be informed of your results by email no later than 14 days after completion of the site visit or submission of additional evidence. Once we are satisfied that you have complied to the criteria, you will be notified of your SUP-Free Certification. Your Certification is valid for two years.
Membership and pricing

The certification standard operates on a three-year package. This is for two main reasons.

Firstly, SUP-Free is confident that even when hotels are starting from the beginning, with our support and guidance, achieving 3-stars should be achievable within a maximum of 3 years.

Secondly, for hotels that are advanced and feel confident in achieving 3-stars immediately, a 3-year commitment ensures that the processes and procedures are fully embedded and long-lasting, giving credibility to the hotel reputation and to the SUP-Free Standard.
