Sustainable Certification Fund for Tourism Recovery
24 May 2022
This fund will offer a £500 discount on membership fees to businesses within the tourism industry looking to gain green certification.
Consumer concern over the environment and climate has doubled in the last decade and visitors are increasingly seeking out businesses and destinations with excellent green credentials. Businesses with a sustainability certification can help make it easier for visitors to make environmentally conscious travel decisions. As well as attracting visitors, taking part in a sustainability certification scheme and reviewing environmental practices can help reduce the carbon footprint of a business, in turn saving money on energy, water and waste bills.
The fund will be available on a first come, first served basis until March 2023 (or until all the available funding has been allocated) and is available through three sustainable tourism certification scheme providers:
- Green Tourism
- Green Key
