A Green Tourism award shows that a business has been independently assessed and certified, so you can choose the greenest option with confidence. Businesses which meet Green Tourism standards receive a Bronze, Silver, or Gold award based on their level of sustainability. Green Tourism is validated by ICRT on behalf of VisitEngland, VisitWales, VisitScotland and Northern Ireland Tourism. Additional information on this certification scheme can be found here.
So what is the “CROESO” programme? It's a programme that combines actions and training and it's made up of three distinct components. You can take up all three- in any order- or complete just one, it's entirely your choice. If you do successfully complete all three however, you'll be able to use the distinctive, specially designed “Croeso Cynnes Cymreig –A Warm Welsh Welcome” logo as seen above, in your own marketing. Visit Wales will also feature it on any advertising you take out with us.
