Read below folks, this is great news and 4 of the hotels are in Cornwall and it shows the qulaity and then environment can meet to create great destinations and experiences.
Also good for Leap is that two of the hotels are our clients. Primrose Valley Hotela nd Bedruthan Steps Hotel where we have been designing a plethora of fun, practical and experimental items. From Shssh – do not disturb signs made form recycled boards to brochures and websites. And even better, we won the GTBS (Green Tourism Business Scheme) account in April which is based in Perth, Scotland. We have been doing a brand tweak, all supporting print based literature signage and web consultation for them.
Keep up the good stuff everyone and well done.
UK hotels deemed to be at the forefront of sustainable tourism have been identified.
A range of independently owned and corporate properties share the honours in the first register of its kind.
The Green Tourism Business Scheme has handed out gold awards to those companies which have demonstrated a firm commitment to safeguarding the environment and promoting sustainable tourism.
The list was compiled by a team of independent assessors who individually verified each establishment’s green credentials before granting them the highest possible grading, according to the organisation.
They had to achieve a minimum standard from more than 120 separate measures ranging from best management practice and energy saving to buying local produce and caring for wildlife and the landscape.
Green Tourism Business Scheme director Andrea Nicholas said: “This is more than just a list it is a sign of the future as more people are demanding that hotels have to be environmentally aware.
“Our assessors visited every hotel on the list and verified their claims to be green.
“We are delighted that so many places want to win the highest accolade – a Gold Award, many others have achieved Bronze or Silver. These hotels are pioneering the way.”
The Green Tourism Business Scheme was founded in partnership with VisitScotland ten years ago and has more than 1,400 members across the UK.
