Who are they?
EarthCheck is one of the world’s leading business advisory groups specialising in sustainability and destination management for the travel and tourism industry. EarthCheck’s holistic approach to responsible tourism and its world-leading science enable destinations and operators to benchmark and certify their performance with confidence and surety.
EarthCheck collaborates with clients in over 70 countries to help plan for the future and guide the design, construction and operation of intelligent buildings and the responsible management of tourism destinations.
The certification is for organisations across the visitor economy with a clearly defined boundary. It requires an appointed representative to be responsible for the management of the certification, however it assesses the entire organisation’s management practices.
The programme addresses key global environmental, cultural, social and economic concerns and deals with environmental regeneration and environmental improvement as well as the conservation of existing natural heritage assets.
Economic concerns addressed in the programme include employment conditions, support of local economy, and recognition of the seasonality of tourism revenue.
What do businesses get from the Scheme?
