EcoTourism Certification Ireland
Here at EcoActiveIreland we are especially delighted when our featured events are run by certified ecotourism businesses. Recently I met with the Meath EcoTourism Network who are currently working as a group to get eco certified.
There are many benefits to having your business eco certified and Mary Mulvey of EcoTourismIreland.com can help with this process:
Core to ecotourism and to the Ecotourism Ireland philosophy is the concept of environmental sustainability and the label has been very much developed with this in mind, in order to ensure that the environmental impacts of Certified ecotourism products are minimised.
The system is designed to be business friendly and aims to act as a road map for development by providing a structured approach for the creation of new ecotourism experiences.
Ecotourism Ireland strongly encourages the use of paperless web based marketing, believing that this holds great environmental benefits, and where brochures and other printed material have to be used, we hope that these are produced in as environmentally friendly manner as possible.
We can only provide training to a network of businesses, please contact your Client Services Manager in Fáilte Ireland or your local Leader company to see if any support can be given to a group in your area.
EcoTourism Ireland are happy to speak at conferences and local development awareness sessions also please contact us using the details below
