    Fraser Suites Glasgow is a Green Tourism Hotel

    Fraser Suites Glasgow recently became one of just a handful of businesses in the Merchant City area to be certified bronze status by Green Tourism. 

    We have been awarded bronze status for our efforts to make elements throughout the hotel more environmentally sustainable; not just in how we run the business from day to day but how we make a stay for any guest more environmentally friendly.

    What is Green Tourism?

    Green Tourism is a UK based scheme aimed at helping businesses become recognised for their efforts in taking a proactive approach to how they can adopt greener ideas and improve business operations. Tourism is a significant area in which small changes can have a big impact. That’s why we wanted to join the scheme and help guests see that when they stay at any Fraser Suites location, they know we’re taking the extra steps to act responsibly.

    What factors determine how well a hotel can be rated?

    As a boutique hotel and serviced accommodation provider, we have a lot of criteria to meet to be recognised as a bronze-level business. Some of the factors the accessor looked at included:

    • How we monitor utilities and waste
    • If we have targets in mind to reduce energy consumption
    • How we make our suites as green friendly as possible
    • How we save water 

    This was our first time being accessed, so getting a bronze level certification is fantastic.

    Does the rating affect the average stay at Fraser Suites Glasgow?

    The only way your stay at Fraser Suites Glasgow will be different is simply by knowing you’re staying in a hotel that is actively taking steps to make every stay greener for guests.

    What other businesses in the area are Green Tourism certified?

    Currently, the only other businesses that meet the same criteria in our area are the Old Fruitmarket and the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall. If you are interested in visiting Green Tourism businesses when staying with us, you can find other Glasgow certified businesses here.

    What improvements can Fraser Suites Glasgow take towards being more environmentally responsible? 

    Based on the feedback Green Tourism provided, we are now pushing to reach the next level and become a silver certified business, something that Fraser Suites Edinburgh has already achieved on its first inspection.
