The Climate Action Certification program is dedicated to reducing carbon emissions and assuring travellers that certified products are backed by a commitment to sustainable practices related to addressing climate change. Climate Action Certification is designed for all sectors of the tourism industry including hotels, attractions, tours, transport, restaurants, travel agents, tourism commissions and industry bodies.
Climate Action Certification is divided in three levels:
Businesses that have undertaken a set of adaption and emissions reduction actions but are not necessarily measuring their carbon footprint.
Businesses that have undertaken a set of adaption and emissions reduction strategies and are auditing and measuring their carbon footprint.
Businesses that have incorporated strategic climate change responses across all relevant levels of business planning and operations. They are measuring and auditing their carbon footprint via a creditable system; have undertaken an advanced level of adaptation, emissions reduction and offsetting; and are working towards becoming carbon neutral.
