Global Sustainable Tourism Criteria for Destinations (GSTC-D) & Global Sustainable Tourism Criteria for Hotel and Tour Operators

Certificate Description

The Global Sustainable Tourism Criteria for Destinations (GSTC-D) set of standards aim to increase sustainable tourism knowledge and practices among public and private stakeholders.

The standards are two sets of GSTC Criteria: Destination Criteria and Industry Criteria, and they are both the minimum requirements for tourism businesses and destinations to pursue in order to protect and sustain the world’s natural and cultural resources, along with conservation and poverty alleviation.

The certified bodies include leading travel companies, hotels, country tourism boards, tour operators, individuals and communities. The standards are developed by the Global Sustainable Tourism Council (GSTC) an independent and neutral USA-registered non-profit organisation that establishes and manages global baseline standards for sustainability in travel and tourism.
