Key information for decision making

The certificates are invited to complete their profiles on Tourism2030 with following information:

In which countries do they operate?
Which tourism categories can be certified?
How far do their criteria cover all sustainability aspects?
How credible is their auditing system?
Are their standards available online for free?
Do they show their certified businesses and destinations on the Tourism2030 Green Travel Maps?
Which other services do they provide?

The answers allow tourism businesses, destinations and tour operators to identify and work with those certificates which meet best their expectations and needs.
