GREEN TOURISM

Our green commitment to the enviroment

GREEN TOURISM BUSINESS SCHEME

Green Tourism is recognised by UK national and regional government as a crucial part of its drive towards sustainability. Their aim is to build on this strong position and ensure that the UK remains at the forefront of sustainable tourism in the future whilst extending their work around the world.

Green Tourism is independently validated by the International Centre for Responsible Tourism (ICRT) on behalf of VisitEngland, VisitWales and the Northern Ireland Tourist Board and endorsed by VisitScotland and Failte Ireland.

Strathmore Hotels Ltd care about the sustainability issues that are affecting our country and want to do our bit to help. As such, by the end of 2015 all our hotels will have been inspected and graded.

Biomass

What’s more, Strathmore Hotels announced in April 2015 plans to switch all our properties to BioMass Energy as an alternative source of hot water moving away from Gas. Read all about it here and see the Green Tourism May Newsletter here. True to our word, the Biomass installation was completed throughout the group in early 2016 with the last hotel (and largest), the Cairn Hotel, coming on board on the 4th March. All 7 hotels completed within a year!
