Counting sheep campers have been awarded a Green Tourism accreditation, the first campervan hire company in the UK to have done so.
We feel that the Scotland and Northumberland are totally unique and our beautiful unspoilt countryside is a joy to explore in one of our campervans, but we wanted to make sure people taking holidays made as little environmental impact as possible and in fact their holiday not only preserves the environment but during their trip they engage with local communities and use local businesses.
Our company values fit very well with the ethos of Green Tourism, so we were delighted to be able to be part of their organisation and along with our Climate Care carbon offsetting scheme we hope to help improve the environment and support local communities for the campers of today and tomorrow.
Green Tourism is the largest and most established sustainable grading programme in the world. To achieve an accreditation, we were graded by a qualified Assessor against a rigorous set of criteria which cover a range of areas such as energy and water efficiency, waste management, biodiversity and social involvement and communication.
What the Award Means
