The Virginia Green program’s voluntary certification program was officially announced 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.
