Ecotourism Attestation

In addition, some businesses are also eligible for the Ecotourism attestation.

Ecotourism is a form of tourism that aims to introduce visitors to a natural environment while preserving its integrity. It includes interpretive activities about the natural or cultural components of this environment, while promoting a respectful attitude towards it. Ecotourism is based on the principles of sustainable development and provides socio-economic benefits for local and regional communities. 

Holding the Ecotourism attestation means being among the leaders in our industry who put the planet at the heart of their priorities. It also means taking advantage of a complete coaching program to get your own sustainable development action plan, in addition to promoting your commitment to your clients.
