Environmental & Sustainability Commitments

Environmental & Sustainability Commitments

Customers want reassurance when choosing where to stay, visit and eat. Quality in Tourism (QIT) is the 'gold standard' accreditation provider in the hospitality & tourism sector. The United Nations 17 sustainability goals are designed to work towards much wider impacts than pure green initiatives. Quality in Tourism (QiT) agree with this approach, it’s as important that businesses are commercially sustainable as environmentally sustainability and ESG (Environment, Social & Government) is a common measure of successful performance. Hotels have a commitment to the wider community, the employees, and owners as well as the guests. Validated through a Primary Authority partnership and ratified by the Secretary of State for BEIS with Cornwall Council, the Safe, Clean & Legal™ accreditation uses Environmenatl Health Officer approved protocols as well as all other mandatory regulatory requirements to independently assess and grade businesses as safe and compliant.
