Wyboston Lakes Resort has won three gold awards from prestigious organisations for its commitment to sustainability.
The 380-acre conference, training and leisure complex secured Gold Status in the prestigious Green Tourism Awards, granted by the Green Tourism Business Scheme, which is a national sustainable tourism certification scheme for the UK & Ireland.
Wyboston Lakes Resort was assessed by a qualified grading advisor against a rigorous set of 145 criteria, covering a range of areas including energy and water efficiency, waste management, purchasing, travel, biodiversity and more.
The Bedfordshire business also received Gold Ecosmart status by Greengage, which is an industry standard accreditation, awarded to hotels and meeting venues that can demonstrate an eco-friendly service approach in five key areas, including energy and water conservation, waste management and recycling, and CSR.
The third accolade is Gold Status in the International Association of Conference Centres’s (IACC) Green Star certification programme, which requires businesses to adhere to a strict Code of Sustainability and is measured every two years.
Managing Director Steve Jones says “Being more sustainable is very important to us and we have been working extremely hard to drive forward our ambitious sustainability policy. To achieve these high standards and to be recognised for our commitment and success with not one, but three gold awards from three highly regarded industry bodies is a superb testament to the great efforts of the team.”
Earlier this month Wyboston Lakes Resort announced that it has partnered with The Energy Check, specialists in minimising energy usage costs and CO2.
