Green Tourism Gold award for Harbourmasterís House

Thursday, January 26, 2012
We are pleased to announce that our headquarters, the Harbourmaster’s House in Dysart has received a gold rating from the Green Tourism Business Scheme (GTBS) for its dedication to green and environmentally-friendly business practices. This means the building is one of only seven in Fife to hold this accolade.

Built in the 17th century, The Harbourmaster’s House houses the FCCT headquarters and hosts Fife’s first coastal centre, a bistro and community room.

Rt Hon Gordon Brown, who opened the Harbourmaster’s House in 2006 following renovations and refurbishments, visited on Monday, 16th January to congratulate us on this prestigious award.

A full review of activities and the hard work and commitment of all the staff have us to upgrade our previously held silver medal from GTBS to gold.

Originally developed in partnership with VisitScotland in 1997, the Green Tourism Business Scheme is the UK national certification scheme for sustainable tourism and now has over 2000 members across the UK and Ireland. Members are reassessed every two years based on sustainability criteria, including energy efficiency and compliance with environmental legislation, and are awarded according to achievement overall.
A spokesperson for the GTBS board commented: “One of the most striking features of The Harbour Master’s House is that it performs very strongly across the broad range of sustainability issues: from fundraising for and undertaking lots of great local environmental projects and events, to LED lighting and a highly efficient heating system, to sourcing produce locally and ethically. These and many more practises are then creatively and effectively communicated to the public resulting in invaluable awareness raising.”

Amanda McFarlane, our Chief Executive, said: “We are delighted to receive this wonderful award as recognition of the hard work and dedication of all our staff in the Harbourmaster’s House.

“We were also pleased to welcome Gordon Brown back to the building as he has always been a great supporter of the Trust and has taken a keen interest in our work in Dysart and along the Coastal Path for many years”.
