Listing Listing – Recognised Programmes

Recognised Programmes are those businesses that have implemented and follow a third party sustainable, responsible or environmental programme.  These businesses will generally;

  • Have achieved a recognised environmental certification standard
  • Are part of an organisation that requires specific environmental or sustainability actions
  • (A list of the recognised programmes is included within the general programme outline available at the bottom of this page)

Fáilte Ireland Registration. Where a national registration scheme is in place only those businesses that are registered can be listed in

Businesses are listed under the following headings; Accommodation, Travel, Green Tours, Shopping, Destinations, Food & Drink, Activities, Festivals, Meetings.

The pricing schedule is designed to encourage businesses (especially micro and small) to promote their travel/tourism business as responsible and if in doubt about which price level your business is at please contact us directly.   If you feel that your product/service is a “Green” one and you are not a member of one of our recognised programmes then you need to apply for the Approval Programme.   More information can be found by downloading the General Outline of programme and costings below. Approved Programme recognises the challenges facing many businesses and understands that certification or membership of another programme may be too onerous or costly at present or does not fit within the business model.  However, you are operating your business in a Responsible manner. More information can be found in the General Outline and Responsible Business Questionnaire downloads below

Promotion promotes across a wide spectrum and also attends trade shows (subject to member support).  More details will be sent to listed members as opportunities arise.  We also ask listed members to provide us with vouchers to be used at shows and in the media.
