The new standard for sustainable meetings & events




For over 25 years Green Tourism has assessed and accredited the sustainable practices of businesses. Now, we’ve created a new standard specific to meetings and events venues.

700 venues & hotels across the UK are already using our Green Tourism standard to provide reassurance to their procurement teams.

Public and corporate sector venues onboard include: Olympia London, Manchester International Conference Centre, Edinburgh International Conference Centre, Manchester United, Leeds University, BMA House, Central Hall Westminster, Glaziers Hall, and the QEII Centre.

Through extensive research and engagement with our clients, we’ve learned they want to communicate to corporate buyers that their business has achieved a meetings specific standard, one which benefits from Green Tourism’s established credibility. We have listened and acted and after a year in development, we launch the new Green Meetings Standard - to drive the message to your customers of your valid investment in sustainability.
