This tool is part of the ETGG2030 Going Green system for boosting Sustainable Tourism through Certification and supports SMEs and expert coaches in their Sustainability Certification Assessment Programme.
This tool can be used by both businesses and sustainability experts to make an ESG (Environmental Social Governance) assessment of a company’s readiness for sustainability certification.
By using the Global Sustainable Tourism Criteria (GSTC) as the framework for the sustainability assessment process, the tool will take you through each aspect of sustainability:- management, socio-economic, environmental, cultural - to develop an overall picture of how sustainable your business already is, and what you can do to improve your performance to third-party assessment standards.
The results can be collated and displayed in a series of reporting formats for either self-assessment or expert evaluation to provide the basis for developing an SME Sustainability Certification Business Plan to implement your Going Green ideas.
It is linked to the Certification Quickfinder, where you can find existing sustainability certificates to suit your needs.
