mission : net zero has joined the Global Sustainable Tourism Council (GSTC) in order to drive sustainable tourism practices amongst our hospitality clients.
The Global Sustainable Tourism Council (GSTC) establishes and manages global sustainable standards, known as the GSTC Criteria. They are a non-profit organisation with a council that represents a diverse and global membership including national and provincial governments, sustainability consultants, travel companies, hotels, tour operators, NGOs, and communities at large.
Hotel guests and hospitality staff are increasingly aware of the effect, both positive and negative, that travel can have on local community and the environment. At the same time, hotel companies, along with travel companies, airlines and tourism boards are keen to emphasise the positive effects that travel can have on the world.
Here at mission : net zero, we work with globally branded and independent hotels to demonstrate their environmental, sustainability and social impact commitments through internationally recognised ecolabel certification.
Jane Kendrick, COO of mission : net zero comments: “In 2015, the UN member states adopted the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to guide governments, the private sector and civil society in transforming our world into a safer, fairer, and more liveable place. Knowing there is a strong relationship between the GSTC Criteria and the 17 SDGs our membership reinforces our commitment to helping our clients meet the highest standards of environmental and sustainable operation.”
