Visit Dorset Business Support Hub Make your business sustainable

Being a sustainable business is not only good for the planet and will help towards lowering your carbon footprint, there are also other benefits which you may not have considered. There are opportunities to save money, be more efficient and also widen your customer base.

According to Bookings.com, 71% of their customers in 2019 wanted more sustainable options to choose from. This echoes more recent research by Euromonitor, which says that 76% of consumers are now more concerned about sustainability than pre Covid-19. However, the number of tourism businesses prioritising sustainability now is only 42%, meaning there is a huge opportunity to meet the growing demand for eco-friendly holidays and low impact tourism.
