Environmental Policy

Our Commitment to the Environment:

Riverside Park is a member of the Green Tourism Business Scheme (GTBS). The GTBS is an accredited scheme to help tourism businesses to reduce their environmental impact, improve the management of any resources they use, such as energy and water, in order to save costs and improve efficiency. It assesses each business individually across a range of criteria relating to environmental good practice.

Riverside Park strives to lessen its impact on the environment in as many ways as possible. We currently provide every house with the facilities to recycle. We buy fair trade and local products wherever possible. We use ‘hippos’ in toilet cisterns to minimise water usage when and we are replacing light bulbs with energy saving units as required. Our business signage is discreet and our buildings are not painted, thus visually blend in with the landscape. We consider it most important that tourism works in harmony with its natural surroundings.
