About Virginia Green

Virginia Green is the state’s voluntary partnership program to encourage green practices in tourism.  The program started in the Fall of 2007 as a partnership between Virginia Tourism Corporation, the Virginia DEQ, and the Virginia Restaurant Lodging & Travel Association.  Since then, 1800+ tourism operations have self-certified their environmental practices and been recognized as Virginia Green Travel Partners. The program provides recognition and resources for all sectors of the industry — Hotels, B&B’s, Attractions, Conference Centers, Restaurants, Breweries, Wineries, Festivals and Events. Learn more about the Certification Program here.
