Peterson Control Union Academy will host a 90-minute webinar on the Sustainable tourism certifications.

Sustainability is an increasingly decisive issue for the tourism industry. Population growth, increasing demand and scarce resources will provide a challenging business environment in which sustainability will have to be incorporated under a holistic approach rather than considered as an independent issue. Sustainability is often understood as a prominent factor in the decision making of the hospitality sector, and it will start to be incorporated in business thinking.

Sustainable tourism is a new way of acting, which reinforces the positive experience of the tourist, respecting the environment, people's rights, culture, traditions and promoting the viability of business over time.

Certification against a trusted Sustainable tourism standard can be of great value. Control Union is a certification body that can provide certification to a number of tourism sustainability related standards including GSTC, Travelife and Greenglobe .

This webinar explores sustainable tourism, its importance and challenges and the ways to achieve sustainable tourism certification.
