Green Tourism awards recognise places to stay and visit that are taking action to support the local area and the wider environment.
The green tourism certification programme
Coming along with our new refurbishment, we have decided to focus on improving our sustainable practices looking ahead to 2020. Due to our multi-million pound refurbishment, it was the perfect time to join Green Tourism, the largest and most established sustainable certification programme in the world, and set much higher standards for ourselves and fully commit to the green revolution. Green Tourism awards recognise places to stay and visit that are taking action to support the local area and the wider environment. Businesses which meet their standards receive a Bronze, Silver, or Gold certificate, based on their level of achievement.
Our silver award
We are proud to say that we have achieved a Silver Award! This award means that we are working responsibly, ethically and sustainably, contributing to our community, by reducing our impact on the environment and aiming to be accessible and inclusive to all visitors and staff. We have been graded 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.
This award is only the starting point of our journey, as we continue to make Strand Palace a more sustainable place and to achieve a Gold Award.
