Andrea Nicholas, managing director of Green Tourism, said: “With increasing numbers of tourists considering sustainability when travelling it has never been more important for a hospitality business to adopt green practices.

“Working with a number of our top members who demonstrate excellence in sustainability, the chosen scholars will gain a wealth of experience and insight from their visit and we hope this will be reflected in the state of sustainability across the hospitality industry.”
