Global Transparency
More than 200 certification programmes on sustainable tourism are operating worldwide: businesses, tour operators and destinations never had a greater choice of regional, national and international certificates and labels to prove their “green” commitment and performance regarding environmentally sound and socially responsible sustainability. ECOTRANS provides transparency through the Guide through the Label Jungle, the Certification Quickfinder and the Green Travel Maps. Below a list of certificates with access to their profiles AND Green Maps.
