Show your customers that you care
The Cumbria Tourism research shows that 86% of visitors are influenced by environmental initiatives when making their holiday choice. Help them choose you by joining our Visit Give Protect scheme and start raising funds for local conservation and community projects which will enhance the environment for your guests.
Embrace Green Accreditation
Cumbria Tourism research found that 84% of customers said they would choose an attraction or accommodation provider who was part of a 'green scheme' over one that was not. Green accreditation enables you to benchmark your performance, set improvement targets and engage staff in the ethos of responsible tourism. We work with both the Green Tourism Business Scheme and the local Green at Heart scheme delivered by the Cumbria Business Environmental Network (CBEN). being a Nurture Lakeland member, fundraiser through Visitor Giving or adopting our responsible tourism actions can help you to achieve CBEN accreditation. There are also discounts available to our members.

Support the improvement of water quality in Windermere
The incredible lakes that we have here are much loved by visitors. They are sometimes unaware of the fragility of these waters, which are susceptible to blooms of toxic blue green algae due to phosphates entering the water from the sewerage system. Your business can help to reduce the supply of phosphates by following the advice of our Love Your Lakes campaign.
