Global standard for international recognition of sustainable tourism certificates

The Global Sustainable Tourism Council (GSTC) has developed and is using the Global Sustainable Tourism Criteria as base for the international recognition of standards and certification programmes. ECOTRANS recommends all stakeholders to use the GSTC criteria as guidance for making tourism more sustainable.
