A growing body of evidence suggests that integrating sustainable practices into your business – whether in the areas of heating, lighting, water usage, landscaping or printing – will ultimately reduce your operating costs. A green strategy will also attract the emerging but fast-growing market of discerning travelers seeking authentically sustainable experiences and services.
Marr Consulting Services has developed a resource called Green Your Business: Toolkit for Tourism Operators that is available free to you to download. It is collaboration between the Tourism Industry Association of Canada, the Canadian Tourism Commission, Parks Canada, and the author and creator Marr Consulting. The toolkit aims to provide practical tips for small and medium size enterprises.
The resource is designed for multiple tourism-sector audiences. Owners and managers will find material addressing the policy, budgetary and strategic aspects of their operations. Staff “champions” will find resources for individual employees keen to lead the green charge at their workplace. Tourism associations will also find this resource useful.
