Sustainability research findings presented at 'greenloop'
This week saw ‘greenloop’, the first visitor attraction conference dedicated to sustainability. Industry leaders from across the world discussed the eco-friendly projects happening at some of the world’s leading visitor attractions. We were part of the conference providing the first of an annual UK sustainability tracker exploring how visitor’s buying habits are changing and what effect those changes will have on the visitor attraction industry.
Speaking alongside other industry leaders, Geoffrey Dixon, head of research at A Different View, presented results from 1,100 interviews conducted in the first week of April.

A few of the stand out stats from the research that affect all visitor attractions:
- 53% of attraction visitors had not bought a product because they thought the product, packaging or the retail environment was not sustainable or not environmentally friendly
- 80% look to buy products because they come from sustainable sources
- 90% say it is important to limit the use of single use plastics in catering
- 36% say they look to find out how sustainable/environmentally friendly a visitor attraction is before they choose to visit
- 67% say they will pay more to attend a visitor attraction if they do the kind of environmentally friendly things they feel are important
Join Blooloop and ourselves in further discussing these findings and their implications at a no-cost webinar session on May 19th at 03:00pm.
It was fantastic to be a part of an event that will undoubtedly shape the future role sustainability plays within our world. Thank you to Blooloop for curating and involving us in such a brilliant event.
