back to archiveGreen Accreditation

Green accreditation schemes can help you identify the impacts of your business on the environment and to develop an environmental strategy.  If you already have an environmental strategy in place then gaining green accreditation will prove to your customers your commitment to running a green business.  There are currently two green business accreditation schemes available to businesses in Wales.

Green Dragon

  • The Green Dragon Environmental Standard is about being able to understand your organisation's environmental impacts and then to manage and improve those impacts on the environment.
  • There are 5 levels to the Standard.
  • Each level is designed to be a stand-alone management system in its own right, where the complexity of the system gradually increases from one level to the next.


Green Tourism Business Scheme

Businesses opting to join Green Tourism are assessed by a qualified grading advisor against a rigorous set of criteria, covering a range of areas, like energy and water efficiency, waste management, biodiversity and more.

Those businesses that meet the required standard, receive a Bronze, Silver, or Gold award based on their level of achievement.

The current network of members is comprised of a wide range of business types, including accommodation providers, visitor attractions, corporate offices and others.
