Dorset supports organisations who are commited to, and promote, sustainable tourism and environmentally friendly holidays.
The Green Tourism Business Scheme is a national campaign which aims to promote businesses who care for the environment. Organisations that join the scheme are assessed by a qualified grading advisor on criteria including energy and water efficiency, waste management and biodiversity. Those that meet the standards can earn a Bronze, Silver or Gold award based on their level of achievement - the higher the award the more they are doing to care for the environment.
Far from being a return to basics, many of the actions taken add to your comfort and enjoyment. View our list of accommodation graded under this scheme and just 'Look for the Leaf' when travelling to Dorset. For further information please visit the Green Tourism Business Scheme website.
