Sustainable Tourism Pledge 2030

We took the pledge!

The Parkside Hotel & Spa has signed the Sustainable Tourism 2030 Pledge, to demonstrate our commitment to improving the sustainability performance of our business between now and 2030.

The UN World Tourism Organization defines sustainable tourism as “tourism that takes full account of its current and future economic, social and environmental impacts, addressing the needs of visitors, the industry, the environment and host communities.”

Each year, we commit to measuring and improving our sustainability performance in the following ways:

  • Each year we commit to auditing our company of our carbon footprint to maintain our Carbon Neutral status. We always make this public for all to see how we're doing. View our current and past years here
  • Continuously work towards the 17 UN Sustainable Goals, see our current progress here

BBB4Good Partner

We're one of the first BBB4Good Trustmark recipients in North America

For more than 100 years, the Better Business Bureau has been recognizing businesses that demonstrate integrity and performance. Today, more businesses are integrating social impact into their business plans. By connecting purpose to their bottom lines, these organizations are reshaping economies and reinvigorating communities. By choosing a higher purpose, businesses can make significant social and/or environmental impacts in their communities.

To address this growing new sector of the marketplace, BBB Institute partnered with local BBBs to launch the BBB4Good initiative to support and elevate purpose-driven businesses. In partnership with our network of BBBs located in communities throughout North America, BBB4Good works to:     

  1. Empower consumers to identify purpose-driven businesses,
  2. Spotlight, recognize and support organizations that integrate social impact into their business plans, and
  3. Expand the growth of this powerful new marketplace sector via new research and partnerships with like-minded organizations that are providing critical support to purpose-driven businesses.
