GREENMark by GreenTravel.ie

Master

For Sustainable and Responsible Businesses

The GREENMark by GreenTravel.ie has been developed to enable smaller businesses to promote their environmental good practices without going down the rigorous route of certification.  It will also be used to identify a suite of additional programmes that businesses can implement alongside certification or recognition, or as stand-alone programmes.

Current GREENMark Programmes Include;

- Eco-Friendly Business    (See below – to enable responsible & sustainable businesses achieve recognition)
- Plastic Smart                      (To support businesses in eliminating Single Use Plastics from customer facing areas)
- Green Destination            (To position villages/small towns as Destinations where visitors can experience sustainable tourism services)
- Greener Festivals             (To encourage festivals to adopt more sustainable behaviour)
- Green Meetings                 (To encourage conference centres, bureau, PCO’s and DMC’s to implement sustainability and to support the GDS-Index)
- Carbon Smart                     (To support a business in implementing an active Carbon (Energy) Reduction Programme  – under development)
