Sustainability Pledge

We're committed to being as sustainable as possible

Visit Dartmoor Sustainability Pledge

Visit Dartmoor is an independent, membership organisation promoting Dartmoor National Park, and the greater Dartmoor area including parts of West, North and South Devon.

We are the Official Tourism Partner to Dartmoor National Park Authority and the Destination Marketing Organisation for Dartmoor.

We are committed to working as an ambassador for Sustainability in our own business and will champion good sustainable tourism practices across the region.

We pledge to help support our member tourism businesses in making changes to reduce climate change.

Visit Dartmoor will pledge to:

  • Create a new dedicated area on the website called Sustainability, showcasing best practise from our members and partners
  • Undertake a consumer marketing campaign to highlight Sustainability as a key booking factor to help increase mini-breaks to the area
  • Highlight the importance of public transport, cycling and walking routes to help promote sustainable travel and to enhance the visitor experience
  • Partner with organisations like The Dartmoor Way to promote walking and cycling routes
  • Help our tourism businesses find local suppliers who can help reduce single use plastic. This will be showcased on the new Business Services area of the website. We will have useful links to sustainable suppliers
  • Join the Green Business Tourism scheme and aim to work towards achieving Silver status by 2021
  • We will also ensure the benefits of this scheme are passed over to our members and partners and we will support them joining the scheme directly
  • Reduce the amount of print we will produce in 2020 by 10%
  • Focusing on online and digital download channels will be our priority
