We'd love you to join us and here's why...
Once you’ve signed up to join Green Tourism, our fully-qualified environmental assessors can offer tailor-made advice on how to reduce your energy usage and therefore utility costs; they’ll also give you tips on efficient ways to reduce waste, and the latest directives on recycling.
From simple ‘plastic-to-paper’ type initiatives to bigger changes, our guidance has proved invaluable in every sense to our members.
By earning and displaying Green Tourism awards you are showing the world that your business takes environmental considerations seriously and is taking practical steps to tackle issues such as energy efficiency, water saving and mindful waste reduction. The awards represent recognised third party verification and as such are a valuable hallmark of green achievement.
For larger enterprises, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is growing in importance, and becoming involved with Green Tourism is a brilliant way to boost those CSR credentials. We’ll give you plenty of guidance on CSR initiatives that will reinforce your environmental commitment and cement your standing in the community by contributing in a genuine and meaningful way to local projects and causes.
Creating and promoting authentic local experiences can be a great way to attract customers while connecting with and supporting like-minded tourism providers. Experiences can involve anything from simply choosing to buy regional and ethically-sourced produce (or growing your own) to devising eco-activities like cycling routes and nature trails with partner enterprises.
By joining Green Tourism and gaining an award (complete with logo to use in marketing, plaque and certificate for display), your business is immediately an at advantage, with a certified grading that sets it apart from those without any accredited green credentials. And more often than not, discerning travellers and corporate bookers are now looking for destinations, attractions and activities that can prove a level of eco-awareness in their operations. The research and our award holders tell us loud and clear:
60% of all leisure travellers in the US alone have taken a ‘sustainable’ trip in the last 3 years, spending more and staying longer than average.
