Achieving sustainable travel at scale requires destinations, tourism companies, and travelers to all do their part. An increasing number of destinations are protecting their natural and cultural heritage and improving the well-being of residents through travel and tourism. More tourism companies are improving their practices through environmental management systems, as well as community development and conservation initiatives. Millions of travelers, however, remain unaware of their impacts and don’t know what they can do to benefit the people and places they visit.
To take action, Sustainable Travel International is developed Travel Better™, scheduled for launch in 2017 during a UN International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development. Our vision is to build a community of passionate travelers and consumers who wish to be part of the solution when it comes to traveling in an environmentally and socially sustainable manner.
