GSTC Contributes to the Portfolio of One Planet – Sustainable Tourism (10-Year Framework of Programmes on Sustainable Consumption and Production – 10YFP)
The Portfolio of Work is a tool to include new and ongoing initiatives and activities under the umbrella of the network, given their potential to advance sustainable consumption and production (SCP) in the tourism sector.
The main focus of activities reported has been outreach and communication, followed by training and the production of knowledge and technical tools and the implementation of projects. Some examples are the Conference on Sustainable Tourism in SIDS held in Seychelles (SSTF); trainings on sustainable practices by GSTC and PATA involving Asian countries and businesses; publications such as the Handbook “Destination: a circular tourism economy” for South Baltic countries (CRT); and tools like the Business Optimizer targeting French SMEs (CCI); projects such as My Green Butler piloting in United Arab Emirates among other destinations (ICRT) or Tourism Tracer in Australia (University of Tasmania); monitoring instruments such as the Indicators of the Sustainable Tourism Zone of the Greater Caribbean (ACS) or commitments like the ITP Goals for the hotel industry.
