Application of the Sustainability Programme Tourism
The Sustainability Programme Tourism South Tyrol is primarily a tool for a more sustainable orientation of tourism destinations. The programme is based on the destination criteria of the Global Sustainable Tourism Council (GSTC) and is divided into the four areas of management, socio-economy, culture and ecology. With the Sustainability Index we want to achieve the following three main goals:
- To make sustainability in the tourism sector measurable
- Systematic control of the sustainable development of South Tyrolean tourism
- Recognition of the achievements of destinations and tourism stakeholders
The sustainability programme serves as the basis for certification for sustainable destinations.
