Tourism businesses in and around the North Pennines AONB and UNESCO Global Geopark, from B&Bs and self-catering cottages to hotels, pubs and visitor attractions, hold awards in the nationally recognised Green Tourism accreditation as well as the David Bellamy Award.
Environmental peace of mind
To enter Green Tourism or the Bellamy Award businesses need to demonstrate that they are: minimising their impact on the environment; communicating their green credentials to their customers; and having a positive impact on their surroundings.
To do this they need to implement a number of practical measures covering management and marketing, social involvement and communication, energy, using water wisely, purchasing, waste, travel, natural and cultural heritage and innovation.
