Green Tourism Policy

Here at Select Scotland Tours we understand the importance of preserving and protecting  the landscape, habitats and beauty of the land in which we live and work and  we aim to ensure our tours are environmentally friendly. We are delighted to have achieved a Green Tourism Business Scheme Gold Award and, in 2021, were awarded a VIBES Scottish Environment Best Practice Award. To achieve this we have committed to:

  • Reduce, reuse and recycle.
  • Offset our carbon footprint by planting native woodland in Highland Scotland through support for The Trees for Life initiative
  • ​​​​​​​Promote sustainable transportation options before, during and after our tours
  • Ensure all our guides drive in a fuel efficient manner, minimising carbon emissions, through participation in accredited driver training programmes.
  • Support ‘Green Tourism’ businesses, local and sustainable food producers, and environmentally friendly visitor attractions
  • Respect the countryside and our natural heritage, working within environmental legislation at all times, including the Scottish Outdoor Access Code
  • Raise awareness about environmental issues among the team, fellow businesses and visitors
  • Promote Scotland as a ‘Green Destination’ to clients by highlighting such initiatives as renewable energy, and sustainable farming, forestry and fishing
  • Remain committed to developing and adopting new ‘green’ initiatives where possible
  • ​​​​​​​Support and participate in community programs aimed at promoting sustainable tourism and protecting the environment
