Sustainability in tourism is as diverse as the world we travel. This includes
- the promotion of local cultures
- the creation of jobs under fair conditions
- the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions caused by travel and
- the conservation of nature in the holiday destinations.
Given the multifaceted nature and complexity, it is clear: that sustainability cannot be achieved overnight. Instead, it is a long and continuous process of transformation that requires thought and cooperation from all those involved.
That is why we at Destination Touristic Services are working with our service providers, in industry initiatives and together with civil society on sustainable further developments and improvements. Over recent years, we have implemented many initiatives and projects to actively shape more sustainable tourism in all areas of our business.
Destination Touristic Services is a Travelife member. That provides us access to Travelife’s expertise and resources and we benefit in terms of certifying our own destination management companies (DMCs). Currently, we have started the process to work step by step towards complying with international sustainability standards.
