Bespoke holiday park operator, Verdant Leisure has recently joined Green Tourism, the largest and most established sustainable certification programme in the world, with the aim of achieving one of their respected awards.
A Green Tourism Award means that a business works responsibly, ethically and sustainably, contributes to its community, is reducing its impact on the environment and aims to be accessible and inclusive to all visitors and staff. Businesses that meet the required standard receive a Bronze, Silver or Gold award based on their level of achievement.
All eight of Verdant Leisure’s parks will be graded in the coming weeks by a qualified assessor against a rigorous set of criteria, covering a range of areas such as energy and water efficiency, waste management, biodiversity and social involvement and communication.
Stacey Gibson, Group Marketing Manager at Verdant Leisure said:
“Verdant Leisure parks are surrounded by stunning scenery, woodland and wildlife, therefore preserving the local environment is a priority and huge concern for all of us. By working towards a Gold certificate with Green Tourism we hope that future generations of Verdant Leisure employees, holiday home owners and guests will be able to enjoy the local offering of our parks.”
