What Does It Mean To Be Certified Gold With Green Tourism?

Each of our luxury hotels have had to embark on their own sustainability journey over the last few years, to earn their status as a Gold Certified hotel with Green Tourism.

 This is about more than just swapping out single use plastics in bedrooms, to achieve Gold, hotels need to invest in a truly sustainable operating model, embed a culture of green thinking and achieving within our teams at each property and commit to a roadmap of change.
