  Campsites get green accreditation


Tuesday 17 May 2005
fieldThe European Commission has extended the EU Eco Label to campsites this week, to encourage better environmentally friendly standards.

To be awarded the European Eco-label a campsite must meet strict minimum standards on environmental performance and health. These should include the use of renewable energy sources, an overall reduction in energy and water consumption, measures to reduce waste, environmental policy setting and the provision of ample environmental and safety information to guests.

“Europe is the world’s most popular tourist destination, and environmental protection is crucial to the long-term viability of this major sector,” said EU Environment Commissioner Stavros Dimas.

“The EU Eco-label for campsites encourages stronger environmental protection and is a unique marketing opportunity for campsites to show they are working in harmony with the environment. Campers can rely on the Flower to guarantee the campsite’s sound environmental performance – it makes it easy to choose ‘green’.”
