Bristol is one of the UK's leading cities for sustainable development. Not only that, but it is the proud home to leading environmental and ethical organisations such as the Soil Association, Triodos Bank and Sustrans. Making it the perfect place to organise your green event.
During 2015, Bristol is the European Green Capital – the first UK City to be awarded this prestigious title. There is an exciting engagement programme for the public as well as business led events exploring sustainability and the environment, embracing both debate and cultural celebration as the city welcomes a host of international speakers to share ideas and inspiration on developing a green future.
Bristol venues understand the impact of their business upon the environment and many venues are accredited through programmes such as the Green Tourism Business Scheme (GTBS). This recognises business excellence in sustainable management and environmental impact and there are many accredited venues in the Bristol area including Gold Award winners Radisson Blu, At-Bristol Science Centre, Mercure Holland House Hotel & Spa and the Create Centre, with many others reaching silver and bronze awards.
Bristol is also widely recognised as the leading Fair Trade City in the UK with annual events celebrating fair trade across the city, including hosting the first ever Fair Trade Business Awards in 2012, the first regional Fair Trade Business Awards in 2013 and will host the International Fair Trade Towns Conference in 2015.
For a major urban city, Bristol has a vast amount of outdoor space. With over 450 beautiful parks and green spaces in Bristol, proportionally more than any other UK city, your delegates are never far away from somewhere to stretch their legs and grab a bit of fresh air. As well as having a green centre, the city is surrounded by the beautiful countryside of South Gloucestershire and the Cotswolds to the north of the city and North Somerset and the Mendips to the south, offering a range of country house hotels, wildlife attractions, mansion houses and castles to host events.
