Towards a sustainable visitor economy

29 Jun, 2022

One of Suffolk’s strategic development priorities for the visitor economy in 2022 is the ambition to become one of the most sustainable visitor destinations in the country.
There are already some great ambassadors leading sustainable tourism approaches in the county, and we are keen to promote the good practice and innovation within the sector.  We are therefore putting a call out for examples of outstanding sustainable visitor economy venues, products and experiences.
We’d like to hear from businesses, venues and attractions that are taking forward green policies, and practice for example: green travel, recycling, waste management, packaging policy, green energy, use of local produce and suppliers, are green scheme registered or seeking to be, are engaged in conservation and are using sustainability in their messaging with customers.
If you would like to feature in this collation of good practice examples for a sustainable visitor economy please contact
Road to Net Zero support is available for Suffolk businesses to access grants from £1,000 to £25,000 for projects that will deliver carbon saving reductions.
The grant can contribute up to 75% of eligible project costs. Projects can be wide ranging and include, but not restricted to, energy efficiency, clean energy, supply chain engagement, behaviour change/education, reducing waste. The scheme will also help create and enhance a business’s decarbonisation plans.
