Chief executive Allison Ogden-Newton said: “COP26 has pressed home to us all how little time we have left to halt the devastating impact our modern lifestyles are having on the environment.

“These establishments have proven that luxury and sustainability can go hand-in-hand, meaning travellers do not have to compromise in order to reduce their carbon impact.”
