Our commitment

Green Globe is an international certification programme which rewards the efforts of tourism businesses in their social, economic, cultural and environmental initiatives. It is the only certified benchmark for sustainable development and corporate social responsibility that exists in the tourist industry and which covers all players in this field.

 

The certification arose from Agenda 21 and principles for Sustainable Development endorsed by 182 Governments at the United Nations Rio de Janeiro Earth Summit in 1992.  The programme is built on a series of 40 topics, set out in over 300 obligatory and optional criteria.  Covering areas ranging from:

­sustainable management, to using local supply chains

­ - protection of the environment,


The Green Globe certification requires a firm commitment from businesses over the long term.  They have to demonstrate significant improvements during the course of on-site audits carried out every two years in order to maintain their certification.
