Introducing the James Villa Holidays Green Scheme
Welcome to the James Villas Green Scheme, a unique collection of greener and more environmentally friendly accommodations promoting a more Eco-friendly holiday experience.
The James Villas Green Scheme identifies properties whereby owners and suppliers have taken extra steps to be kinder to the environment. We only include properties that have met our assessment criteria and reward those who do well by showcasing their achievements to our customers. We do this by displaying an award logo against their property in the brochure and website, and a certificate to display within their property.
We have established our Green Scheme by creating a criteria which focuses on environmental and social sustainability, in the hope that we are able to provide more sustainable properties to our customers. The scheme also helps protect and respect their local environment and the local communities where they operate. We encourage accommodation owners to think sustainably by encouraging recycling, waste minimisation, using renewable energy, energy and water efficiency. We provideing more information about the local area and facilities, encourage guests to use local transport, walk or cycle and purchase locally produced goods by visiting local markets.
Playing our part
Since launching "Wyndham Green" in 2006, Wyndham Worldwide has invested in sustainable practices by introducing the Wyndham Green programme across its business units, which focuses on sustainability across the company and its many brands including James Villa Holidays. The Wyndham Green programme is a way of living and working, based on our vision and values and supporting our global and local communities while developing sustainable programmes that deliver economic benefits. Most importantly, it shows we understand that our business activities do impact the earth and peoples lives, and are committed to improving our sustainable practices.
In 2015, James Villa Holiday was very proud to become a partner of Travelife along with cottages.com and Hoseasons, who are also part of WVRUK (Wyndham Vacation Rentals UK). Travelife is a leading training, management and certification initiative for tourism companies committed to sustainability. Operating our business in a socially and environmentally friendly manner makes good business sense.
