Virgina Beach CVB Green Certified

Kudos to the Virginia Beach Convention & Visitor's Bureau for being named the Commonwealth's first "Virginia Green Destination". I believe the CVB is only the second in the country to be certified independently for its sustainable practices.

The destination has been credited for efforts that include an expanded beach recycling program, the introduction of new hybrid-electric shuttles and a new green event certification program.

To see the innovative programs being created check out Virginia Beach Green. The web site is a good model to look at for examples of how to communicate green services to leisure travelers and the meetings market.
