The Green Tourism Award is a world-wide sustainable certification programme. Belfast-based tourism and hospitality businesses can apply for gold, silver or bronze accreditation for their efforts to meet best practice standards in sustainability.
We’ll reimburse the first year fees for eligible businesses that apply for a Green Tourism standard. Your business will also be eligible for discounted rates in years two and three. To get the fee funded in year one, you need to apply before 30 June 2022.
