The Glenholm Centre
The Glenholm Centre and Glenholm Wildlife Project are set amid some of the most beautiful scenery in Southern Scotland. We would like to keep it that way for future generations. It is our aim to make sure that the activities at the Centre have minimal impact on our environment and that we pass on to the next generation, the Centre in the same or better condition than we find it. To help us achieve we are members of the Green Tourism Business Scheme and have a stated environment policy.
The Green Tourism Business Scheme is the most successful environmental accreditation body of tourism related businesses in Europe and has (as of 2005) over 500 members in the UK, including amongst others, accommodation providers, visitor attractions, tour operators and conference facilities.
To gain a GTBS award, businesses are assessed once every two years by IEMA (Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment) registered environmental auditors, who have considerable experience within the tourism sector. The Gold award received by the Glenholm Centre and Glenholm Wildlife Project is the highest award and implies 'excellence in environmental practice".
