Caravan and Motorhome Club achieves Green Tourism Silver Award
The Caravan and Motorhome Club is delighted to announce it has achieved a Silver Award, from the Green Tourism accreditation scheme, across its nationwide campsite network and its Head Office, based in Sussex.
The Award was presented to the Club at a Parliamentary Reception at the Senedd in Wales on 18th May during Wales Tourism Week.
Green Tourism is a long-established UK based organisation that aims to help businesses improve their tourism services to meet the growing need to become more environmentally and socially responsible. The awards certification programme recognises the commitment of tourism businesses which are actively working to become more sustainable.
Green Tourism awards an accreditation of Gold, Silver or Bronze to recognise the level of achievements based on a number of criteria taken from their People, Places and Planet standard. The awards are acknowledged worldwide as an indicator of good environmentally-friendly practice.
Mark Feast, the Caravan and Motorhome Club’s Sustainability Advisor said, “The Club is exceptionally proud to have achieved a Silver Award from Green Tourism. Together we are on a continuous journey of responsible actions to reduce our environmental impact and help our members, guests, and future generations, get more from the great outdoors.”
Mark continued, “We are very proud that the Club’s Head Office achieved a Silver Award and our key strengths were within the People area of the criteria, including Health and Safety and Equality, Diversity and Inclusion. This assessment is an opportunity to celebrate the Caravan and Motorhome Club’s working standards and also highlight areas to focus our efforts for improvements to aim to achieve the Gold award in the near future.”
Caravan and Motorhome Club campsites have been awarded a range of awards, between Silver and Bronze. Club Members will be able to view the campsite's award level in each of the campsite reception areas and in the new edition of the Club’s Sites Directory & Handbook.
