RESTAURANTS IN LATVIA

HOTELS IN LATVIA

Partners of the project  „Joint eco sign for Lithuania‘s and Latvia‘s restaurants and hotels in cultural objects” have developed an eco-labeling scheme for heritage hotels and restaurants

The expansion of cultural tourism over recent decades has played a crucial role in the promotion and the protection of tangible and intangible heritage. Lithuania and Latvia are known for the countries‘ cultural heritage objects (especially mansions), little altered natural surroundings, resorts tradition, and many other things.

Both countries have a huge interest in ecotourism and in emphazising the need to protect cultural objects and to efficiently use regional heritage for benefits of both countries.
The project „Joint eco-sign for Lithuania's-Latvia's restaurants and hotels in cultural objects“ started in April 2017 and will come to an end in January 2019. The main objective is to increase the number of visitors to cultural heritage sites in Lithuania-Latvia by the creation of a new eco-sign for restaurants and hotels in those areas.

The main project output would be Sustainable Tourism. It will in the long-run:

  • Contribute to increasing the number of tourists and their visit duration to eco-sign hotels and restaurants;
  • The newly introduced eco-sign will raise the standards for restaurants and hotels in the cultural heritage area who will have to adapt “green technologies” and to comply with strict other environmental requirements;
  • Promote the protection of heritage objects;
  • Promote local culture and products;
  • Will in different ways benefit the hotel and restaurant consumers, and
  • Undoubtedly increase the countries’ competitive advantage.

During the project new and joint eco-sign will be created and implemented. This project is unique in worldwide, because of its focus on cultural heritage objects. New Eco-labeling system represents 11 aspects of sustainable business, 128 evaluation criteria, of which 42 are mandatory. There are 20 project partners involved, from the most beautiful, and state protected buildings in Latvia and Lithuania. All of them operate as accommodation or/and restaurant businesses.

To become eco sign attributed property, hospitality business, located in heritage objects,  fills the application  form 

and  signs a contract with a basic commitment.

The system consists of 126 criteria divided in 11 Aspects of sustainability.

42 of the criteria are mandatory and hence a pre-requisite for being able to participate. All mandatory criteria must be met to achieve the certificate.

The system currently has a three year continuous improvement rule.

Businesses must meet two additional supplementary criteria each year. Year two the business performs a new assessment and in addition at least one supplementary criteria per aspect is to be met. Year three the business performs a new assessment and now in two more supplementary criteria per aspect are to be met.

The system is built on self-auditing with a demand to openly display the result.

Once a business meets all mandatory criteria (year one)  and after the check on site it can freely use the logotype.

Kultūras tūrisma straujā attīstība beidzamajās desmitgadēs ir spēlējusi milzīgu lomu, lai veicinātu un aizsargātu materiālo un nemateriālo mantojumu. Lietuva un Latvija ir zināmas kā valstis ar milzīgu kultūrvēsturisko mantojumu (īpaši, viensētām, muižām), gandrīz neskartu dabu, kūrortu tadīcijām un daudzām citām tamlīdzīgām lietām.

Abām valstīm ir milzīga interese un iestrādens ekotūrisma attīstībā uzsverot mepieciešamību aizsargāt kultūras objektus un efektīvi izmantot reģionālo mantojumu abu valstu labākam sniegumam starprautiskā līmenī.

Projekts "Apvienotais ekomarķējums Lietuvas - Latvijas restorāniem un viesnīcām kultūrvēsturiskajās celtnēs" sākās 2017. gada aprīlī un turpināsies līdz 2018.gada septembra beigām.

Projekta galvenais mērķis ir - līdz ar jaunās ekozīmes ieviešanu restorāniem un viesnīcām, palielināt apmeklētāju skaitu kultūrvēsturiskajām celtnēm un būvēm Lietuvā un Latvijā,

Projekta virsmērķis - ilgtspējīgs tūrisms, t.sk. ilgtermiņā:

  • dot ieguldījumu, lai palielinātos tūristu skaits un tūristu uzturēšanās ilgums ekozīmi saņēmušajās viesnīcās un restorānos;

  • veicinās kultūrvēsturisko objektu aizsardzību;
  • viecinās vietējo kultūras un citu tūrisma produktu atpazīstamību;
  • dažādos veidos uzlabos viesnīcu un restorānu klientu apmierinātību;
  • neapšaubāmi palielinās valsts konkurētspēju.

Projekta īstenošanas laikā jaunā un apienotā ekozīme tiks izstrādāta un ieviesta. Šis projekts ir unikāls pasaules mērogā, jo tas fokusējas uz kultūrvēsturiskajiem objektiem paredzot novērtēt dažādas biznesa jomas ar vismaz 100 kritērijiem, daļu paredzot arī kā obligāti izpildāmus.

Projektā ir iesaistījušies 20 partneri no lieliskām un valsts līmenī aizsargātām kultūrvēsturiskajām celtnēm Latvijā un Lietuvā, kas visi tiek operēti kā izmitināšanas un/vai restorānu bizness.

Lithuania and Latvia have been very well known in Europe and outside it, for the countries’ historic paths and their cultural heritage objects, (especially, e.g., centuries-old-mansions), natural surroundings which have been altered very little in recent times, the countries’ resorts, and many other things which are very much valid for the concerned project.
