Tourism & Hospitality

The Programme is the hospitality, travel and tourism resource for sustainable and responsible tourism in Ireland. GHP provides resource efficiency advice and support and consulting to the tourism and hospitality sector in Ireland. GHP also offers an environmental certification programme which is the only Irish developed certification standard for the whole hospitality sector. All hospitality businesses can reduce their costs by becoming more efficient, and can also be certified to either the Eco-Label Award or the Eco-Tourism Label. The general principle for all members is to implement an Environmental Management System, requiring identification of the environmental issues within members businesses. GHPs CSR Mark of Good Practice can be achieved by most businesses. Green Hospitality will work with each sub-sector to tailor certification to suit each type of business, without losing the challenge and EMS criteria required to demonstrate compliance with good practice.
