Greenloons Press Releases



ITR is a non-profit organization that maintains a Memorandum of Understanding with UNESCO and is a member of the UNWTO and the Global Sustainable Tourism Council (GSTC), which is supported by the United Nations Foundation and the UNEP.

BIOSPHERE RESPONSIBLE TOURISM Certification, sponsored by Instituto de Turismo Responsable (ITR), recognize and certify the destinations and touristic industry that are sustainably managed and, therefore, are examples of sustainability in international tourism.  Biosphere is a GSTC-recognized certification program and is the only and first in the world that is GSTC-approved.

The requirements demanded by BIOSPHERE standards are grouped in the following areas: The preservation of natural, cultural and landscaping heritage; the economic and social development of the local community; the contribution of the entity to the quality of life of the employees; the conservation of the environment; and the satisfaction of the clients regarding his/her involvement in the system and the quality of the service.

The Sustainable Tourism Certification Alliance (the “Alliance”) aims to create an integrated regional approach to sustainable tourism certification initially in southern and East Africa with stakeholders from other African countries encouraged to participate as a means of broadening the scope of the Alliance over time.
