Promoting your green credentials

Some practical suggestions:

  • Encourage feedback via comments cards.
  • Ask visitors politely to consider the environment during their stay. You can be ethical and potentially save money at the same time.
  • You may decide to become fully audited against a sustainability standard or scheme. It's good practice to communicate any achievements.
  • Put your environmental policy on your website, in guests’ welcome packs and/or in reception.
  • Improving the sustainability of your business can improve/enhance overall quality of visitor experience.
  • Various organisations such as the tourism partnerships, national park and local authorities will help businesses communicate environmental achievements. They may publish relevant logos in brochures/websites.
