We aim to be the most trusted international eco-tourism brand for consumers and businesses alike – the natural leader in green grading.
From our beginnings in Scotland, we have grown to over 2000 members across the UK, Ireland, Italy, Canada and Zimbabwe, making us the world’s largest sustainable certification programme of its kind.

We’re independently validated
Green Tourism is considered one of the most rigorous certification programmes of its kind. It is the only one independently validated by the International Centre for Responsible Tourism (ICRT) on behalf of VisitEngland, VisitWales and the Northern Ireland Tourist Board, and is endorsed by VisitScotland and Failte Ireland.
We’re working with The Woodland Trust to help reduce our business carbon footprint
We have worked with the Woodland Trust to create 250 m2 of new native woodland. In time, this will absorb at least 10 tonnes of carbon dioxide, helping with our strategy to reduce our business carbon footprint.
