This council originates from the merge of Global Sustainable Tourism Criteria (GSTC) and the Sustainable Tourism Stewardship Council (STSC) in 2009. Launched at the World Conservation Congress in October 2008, The Global Sustainable Tourism Criteria (GSTC) are a set of 37 voluntary standards (including biodiversity conservation and interactions with wildlife criteria) representing the minimum that any tourism business should aspire to reach in order to protect and sustain the world’s natural and cultural resources, while ensuring tourism meets its potential as a tool for poverty alleviation.
