The Partnership for Global Sustainable Tourism Criteria: Global Sustainable Tourism Criteria

Resource Type: 
Description: 

The Global Sustainable Tourism Criteria are an effort to come to a common understanding of sustainable
tourism, and will be the minimum that any tourism business should aspire to reach. They are organized
around four main themes: effective sustainability planning; maximizing social and economic benefits for
the local community; enhancing cultural heritage; and reducing negative impacts to the environment.
Although the criteria are initially intended for use by the accommodation and tour operation sectors, they
have applicability to the entire tourism industry.
