Certificate TourCert

The TourCert certification is granted to tour operators, accommodations, destinations and other tourism businesses with high economical, ecological and social responsibility. The TourCert system strives to impact the entire process and the company’s continuous development on the way to a sustainable future. The key of the implementation is “empowerment“, which means building learning structures and being jointly committed to business development. TourCert awards the TourCert Check as an introduction to the topic of sustainability in tourism ("Tourcert Qualified") and the third party audited "TourCert Certificate".

All criteria catalogues of TourCert are based on the international quality and environmental management standards according to ISO and EMAS as well as the ISO guidelines for corporate responsibility (ISO 26000) and are also oriented to the international regulations of the Global Sustainable Tourism Council (GSTC) - GSTC recognised
