Sustainable Tourism Initiatives and Resources

Throughout the tourism industry, there are many initiatives and advocacy campaigns that promote best practices, codes of conduct, and certification programs, all designed to help deepen our understanding of, and commitment to, sustainable travel. CREST with the assistance of UN Environment have produced a resource package for attendees of this Sustainable Tourism Forum that contains valuable information for tourism-related businesses and travelers. This directory has fact sheets on a multitude of topics including: cultural heritage preservation, local employment & fair wages, marine litter, food waste, the illegal trade in wildlife, and more.
