London hotels sign up to Green Tourism scheme

Luxury hotels in London have begun signing up to the London Development Agency’s (LDA) Green Tourism for London scheme.

More than 30 hotels and attractions have already signed up, including the Ritz, the O2 Centre and the Royal Lancaster Hotel.

The scheme, initially launched in October 2007 to help “improve resource and energy management”, awards Bronze, Silver and Gold accreditations to help visitors select the most eco-friendly venue.

LDA chief executive Manny Lewis told Travel Weekly that the scheme underlines the responsibility of all London’s businesses to the environment.

He said: “In signing up to the Green Tourism for London scheme these hotels and attractions are not just doing their bit for the environment but are making huge savings in their energy and water costs.”

It is also hoped that the scheme will help raise London’s green tourism profile amid growing global consumer concern over the impact of climate change.
