All Virginia Green partner facilities must certify that they have an active program in place to reduce environmental impacts. All participants have commitments in place for Recycling, Energy & Water Conservation, and many other sustainable practices.
Recycling, Waste Reduction, Energy and Water Conservation
All Virginia Green participants must have programs in place which address these environmental impacts.
Virginia Green Partnership & Certification
The Virginia Green program is administered through a unique partnership supported by the Virginia Tourism Corporation, the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality and the Virginia Restaurant Lodging & Travel Association. The certification itself is administered by the Virginia Green Travel Alliance, a 501c3 non-profit organization created to support green tourism efforts statewide.
The Certification is based upon voluntary commitments to sustainability. Many Virginia Green partners have made incredible progress, while others are just getting started; but they are all taking steps to protect Virginia’s natural resources and beauty!

Consumers Play a Major Role!
The Virginia Green program depends upon customer feedback to help fix problems and encourage partners to continue to improve.
