The Cotswold Conference Centre has been recognized for its environmental performance by the Green Business Tourism Scheme (GBTS).
The centre, which is located in the town of Broadway, was awarded a gold medal under the initiative, with the judging panel impressed by its energy and water efficiency in addition to its waste management and biodiversity efforts.
Notably, the venue is the first member of the Conference Centres of Excellence group to take part in the scheme in addition to being one of the first training centres in the county of Worcestershire to receive such recognition.
Commenting on the award, the venue's sales manager Nick Akerman told the Cotswold Journal: "We are very pleased to be the first dedicated conference centre in the Midlands to gain recognition from GTBS.
"We are always trying to minimise our impact on the special environment we have here.
"Clearly, nothing man does is ever environmentally friendly (apart from planting trees) and generally the UK hospitality industry is extremely wasteful.
"So it is very important that initiatives like the GTBS exist. It serves to keep awareness levels high of what we can all do."
The Cotswold Conference Centre is located just two hours from London and one hour from the cities of Birmingham, Bristol and Oxford.
