Which level of accreditation can my organisation apply for?

Your organisation can apply for any level of accreditation. However, as a good rule-of-thumb we recommend that you only apply for the next level up from your previous accreditation award e.g. if your organisation was awarded bronze in 2020 then we’d expect a Silver submission this time around.

Please see our guidance document for further information.

Yes. We’ve tried to make the application process as easy as possible however we recognise that your organisation may need support to complete it. Please contact sustainable.journeys@tfgm.com and we’ll help you on your way!


We’ve only just joined the BTN. Can we apply for accreditation?

Bronze accreditation submissions will be considered for any organisation who can provide evidence of a ‘Commitment to supporting Sustainable Travel’. There is specific criteria to demonstrate this, but please get in touch with sustainable.journeys@tfgm.com and our team will be happy to help.
