The next time you book an airport hotel in London, you may have another category to choose from, with many places of lodging in the metropolis signing on to a new program along with other major tourist attractions to support an environmentally friendly mode of operation.

The London Development Agency received the blessings of Mayor Ken Livingstone for its Green Tourism for London scheme, and aside form hoteliers, the London Zoo and the O2 centre have come onboard. Livingstone was recently quoted as saying, "It is welcome news that some of the main players in London's tourism industry have signed up to this scheme to go green. This is a win win opportunity, helping people identify organisations that are playing their part to save the planet, and helping businesses save money from reduced energy bills.”

Manny Lewis is the chief executive of the LDA, and says, “All of London’s businesses have a responsibility to help prevent runaway climate change. In signing up to the Green Tourism for London scheme these hotels and attractions are not just doing their bit for the environment but are making huge savings in their energy and water costs. I would encourage all hotels across the capital to get assessed, earn their awards and help ensure London continues to lead the way in tackling global warming.”
