Awards & Schemes

The Green Tourism Business Awards Scheme started in 1997 and is the leading sustainable tourism certification scheme in the UK with over 1,400 members. Devon is proud to have 95 businesses accredited under the Green Tourism Business Scheme.

Businesses are assessed by a qualified grading advisor against a set of criteria, covering a range of areas such as energy, water, waste management, biodiversity etc. Accreditation rewards tourism operators that demonstrate these environmental management practices and community support, with a gold, silver or bronze award.

GTBS is a useful business tool in generating environmental benefits, operating efficiencies, quality assurance and customer satisfaction. It encourages closer links with local suppliers, community organisations, local artists and craftsmen.
