Green Tourism

We’re proud of our eco-friendly credentials here in Orkney.

With our worldwide reputation as a centre of renewable energy expertise and innovative energy plans for the future, Orkney is very much at the forefront of the drive to net zero.

That commitment extends to our tourism sector too, with local businesses and providers all encouraged to do everything they can to contribute to our climate-conscious community.

Visit Scotland’s Green Tourism Scheme is one way Destination Orkney members can showcase what they’re doing to reduce their environmental impact.

The scheme assesses over 70 things including carbon, waste, and biodiversity, and works across a range of businesses - from accommodation and attractions, to activities and tours - with more members signing up all the time.
