BSI signs partnership agreement with Green Tourism Business Scheme

BSI, a UK-based procurement agency focused on accommodation, meetings and event management, has formed a new partnership with the Green Tourism Business Scheme (GTBS) eco-label to promote ‘greener’ accommodation and venue options to its booking consultants and customers.
GTBS gradings will soon be featured on the BSI consultants’ booking system and the company’s online booking tool BSIDirect.
As part of the agreement BSI will be sponsoring a ‘Carbon Reduction Award for a Hotel Chain’ as part of the GTBS’s Green Tourism Week (6 to 12 June) to mark the new relationship.
“The GTBS is delighted that BSI is taking a leadership role in promoting ‘greener’ accommodation options for business travellers,” says MD of the GTBS, Andrea Nicholas. “The prevalence of responsible booking policies within the business travel and meetings market is growing fast and corporate travel procurement specialists typically now insist on a ‘sustainable’ dimension. BSI’s new partnership will help raise awareness of GTBS-accredited properties in this valuable sector.”
MD of BSI, Trevor Elswood (pictured) says: “Many of our customers lead the way in carbon reduction and environmental sustainability and seek robust solutions in the hotel arena. As Green Tourism standards are only achieved following assessment against a rigorous set of criteria, delivering customer visibility of these standards underpins our pledge to deliver environmental care alongside significant cost savings.”
