Caring for the environment is fundamental to our business. Our guests expect us to be responsible. And the landscape is so important to our livelihoods. Our businesses rely on the landscape - why would we not want to protect it?
We were pleased to receive constructive advice and help from our Assessor. They were especially helpful when dealing with how we can get the message across to our prospective customers about our environmental endeavours.
Very helpful advice. Positive and friendly. Always a pleasure to get advice that is actually achievable and beneficial to our business as well as helping us be more green.
Joining Green Tourism was one of the best things we ever did. We have halved our waste to landfill by 50% saving us nearly £90,000 per year & we have also made large savings on our utility bills.
Our Assessor was very courteous and knowledgeable about all areas, explaining what she was looking for and offering helpful suggestions along the way. She made it feel that she was there to offer assistance, as opposed to a purely tick box, grading visit.
Stuart was extremely helpful without telling us how we should be running our business! He took a genuine interest in everything we showed him and gave us some fresh ideas.
Green Tourism is a structured approach to encourage everyone to look at their business in a completely different way that makes it more successful, more sustainable, & bizarrely more profitable.
We would strongly recommend any business considering joining Green Tourism to do it. It's positively exciting & very rewarding when you receive the recognition. Just remember it’s a journey not just an award.
Accreditation reassures customers we’re not just saying we’re green we actually have the proof of our commitment ! Bi-annual inspections help us focus on future improvements & there is help from a friendly face if we need it.
