What is Global Ecosphere Retreats® (GER) Recognition?

Global Ecosphere Retreats® (GER) Recognition is setting a new standard in sustainability and is a driving force in promoting and developing sustainable thinking around the globe. It ensures that best practices are adhered to and innovative approaches experimented with and researched to develop sustainable solutions.

The GER® recognition is undertaken by The Long Run Members who have transitioned from a commitment to sustainability to the effective demonstration that their resources are sustainably managed. Once the recognition is achieved, these become The Long Run Global Ecosphere Retreats®.
