Introducing Green Tourism Webinar
Event Date: 8 March 2022
Event Time: 6pm - 6:45pm
Through our Green Tourism programme, businesses can identify ways to reduce energy usage, save money and achieve an internationally regonised accreditation, all completely free of charge. We are keen to position West Lancashire as a sustainable destination and want our businesses to be at the heart of it. It's great to see businesses from a wide and diverse range of sectors already signed up and we look forward to following their journey to become greener.
After listening to feedback from some of our local businesses, we are pleased to announce that the next 'Introducing Green Tourism' webinar will take place on Tuesday 24 January at 6pm. This webinar will give a step-by-step account of how the scheme operates, and detail the ways in which businesses can identify ways to reduce energy usage, save money and achieve an internationally regonised accreditation.
