Sustainable Tourism Index Released

The Economist Intelligence Unit released The Sustainable Tourism Index which assesses countries on their commitment to develop and promote sustainable practices in tourism.

The report showed that the world’s developed countries have done more at the national level than their emerging-world rivals to formulate policy, foster adherence to recognised standards, encourage travel and tourism businesses to reduce their environmental footprint, co-ordinate efforts with NGOs and the private sector, and ensure protection of their cultural and historical assets.

Quotes from Randy Durband, CEO, GSTC, are included as the report refers to the GSTC Criteria.
