Green Tourism has detailed its latest ‘Green Check’ offering for tourism businesses seeking a sustainability award.

Kicking off on November 13th, the sustainability check will run until the end of January next year, which will see Green Tourism offer businesses a pre-assessment review.

The ‘Green Check’ will include a series of questions taken from the Green Tourism rating system, which will give companies an idea of where they sit on their journey to be more green.

Businesses will then be given guidance and advice on how they can achieve an award.

Andrea Nicholas, MD of Green Tourism, said: “There is much evidence that consumers, particularly Generation Y, are motivated by ethical consumption. We can certainly back that up by the experiences of those who currently hold a Green Tourism award,” reports Boutique Hotelier.

“Not only are award holders able to communicate clear and compelling differentiation, they are also benefiting from real cost savings by taking on board the advice of our assessors.”

2017 marks Green Tourism’s 20th anniversary, and has launched the initiative as part of its overall strategy to build on the sustainable movements of over 2,000 tourism companies.

Malmaison London in Charterhouse Square announces the launch of its new informal meeting space, The Vaults.

Using the original vaulted architecture of the former nurses home – which gives the space its name – the meeting rooms are formed of private booths that are nestled in the corner of the hotel’s Chez Mal brasserie.

Designed with the entrepreneur and SME community in mind, The Vaults offer just the right amount of privacy for professional one on one meetings, interviews, client lunches or creative sessions – carefully balanced with the atmosphere, fantastic service and flexibility of the brasserie.

The Vaults seat up to eight people and, for £10 per person per hour, comes with unlimited tea, coffee, water, homemade snacks and Wi-Fi. The Vaults are available daily from 7am to 6pm.

Malmaison London is located on the edge of Clerkenwell in West Smithfield – a stone’s throw from the Square Mile.

Josie Simcox, General Manager of Malmaison said: “London has an amazing entrepreneurial spirit, which is why it’s no surprise it was ranked the number one city in Europe for supporting start-up businesses. As a result, there is an increasing demand for affordable, stylish, meeting spaces. We feel that The Vaults perfectly cater to this community, offering inspiring and charismatic meeting spaces without the hefty price tags.”
