Bristol is one of the UK’s leading cities for sustainable development and home to leading environmental and ethical organisations such as the Soil Association, Triodos Bank and Sustrans.
During 2015, Bristol was European Green Capital – the first UK city to be awarded this prestigious title. An exciting engagement programme for the public was developed, as well as business-led events exploring sustainability and the environment, to share ideas on developing a green future.
Bristol continues to wave the flag for all things green with lots of environmentally minded events and eye-opening tours and talks year-round. We’re widely recognised as the leading Fair Trade city in the UK and home to other inspiring initiatives such as community food growing movement Incredible Edible. The famous BBC Natural History Unit is also based in Bristol, as is Wildscreen Festival, the world’s largest wildlife and environmental film festival
The city’s 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). Accredited venues include gold award winners Radisson Blu, At- Bristol Science Centre, Folly Farm, Mercure Holland House Hotel & Spa and the Create Centre.
Food and drink is extremely important and many venues pride themselves on offering a locally sourced menu. Located on Bristol’s Harbourside, Bordeaux Quay was the UK’s first eco restaurant to achieve a gold rating under the Soil Association’s sustainable catering scheme. Venues such as Watershed are also acknowledged for their commitment to high-quality, freshly prepared food using seasonal, local produce. Annual citywide festival Food Connections brings the artisan and slow food revolution to the public through pop-up restaurants, talks andworkshops.
Bristol has over 450 beautiful parks and green spaces – proportionally more than any other UK city. This means your delegates are never far away from somewhere to stretch their legs and grab some fresh air. It’s also surrounded by the beautiful countryside of South Gloucestershire and the Cotswolds to the north and North Somerset and the Mendips to the south, with country house hotels, castles and wildlife attractions for events.
