About Green Tourism

green leaves on green backgroundWe exist to make greener tourism & develop sustainability in the hospitality industry.

Green Tourism has been running since 1997. We are a not-for-profit organisation.

We have more than 2,000 members across the UK, Ireland and Canada, making us the world’s largest and most established sustainable certification programme in the world.

Green Tourism is recognised by UK national and regional government as a crucial part of its drive towards sustainability. Our aim is to build on this strong position and ensure that the UK remains at the forefront of sustainable tourism in the future whilst extending our work around the world.

Green Tourism is independently validated by the International Centre for Responsible Tourism (ICRT) on behalf of VisitEngland, VisitWales and the Northern Ireland Tourist Board and endorsed by VisitScotland and Failte Ireland.

“Green Tourism provides excellent value for money to a wide range of tourism firms with first class environmental advice and auditing. Satisfaction rates of certified firms are very high and drop out rates low, both for the smallest of tourism firms and increasingly at corporate level.”
