About the product

Tourism, perhaps more than any other industry, depends largely on the environment for its continued well-being. This publication examines the role of ecolabels within the context of voluntary self-regulation in this industry. Intended to improve understanding of the principles on which tourism ecolabels depend, it analyzes the important issues involved and, with many examples from existing schemes, offers practical help in the design and operation of new schemes intended to steer tourism closer to sustainability.
