Vert Bordeaux is a tourist agency commited to local and sustainable tourism. Vert Bordeaux integrates the principles of sustainable tourism into its strategic management and the offers it makes.
This translates into internal commitments (ethical banking, eco-designed website, second-hand equipment, printing on recycled paper with vegetable-based inks) and in the design of tours and day trips (local food restaurant, organic winery, no single-use plastic, awareness of local environmental issues) in order to reduce the impact of tourism in Bordeaux and Gironde.
