Or if the choices you make when travelling may impact the environment or the local community? Do you know what your footprint looks like?
You already know some sustainable actions, and maybe you even put some of them into practice in your daily life... Recycling, saving water, buying green products, volunteering... But what about your impact when travelling?
When we are on our leisure and resting time, or on a business trip, we may not be as conscious of the impact we may cause. And those good habits we have acquired in our daily routine can easily disappear. So, what if there was a way to know how sustainable an entity or destination was? Knowing their good practices would allow us, as citizens and tourists of the world, to make more informed and aware consumption decisions and to act accordingly, participating in sustainable initiatives wherever we are.
Just as you check the labels on the products you buy, with Biosphere you can now check the label on your travel itinerary. Biosphere is the international sustainability management and recognition system, based on the 2030 Agenda and the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals. A model that helps companies and destinations to meet the 17 SDGs and to continuously contribute to improving their efforts and best practices.
When a destination or business displays its Biosphere label, you know they are making positive efforts and are committed to sustainability. It’s time to travel consciously!
By prioritising entities that guarantee their sustainability, you make the right choices, so that no matter where you are in the world, you can continue with the same sustainable actions you work so hard for at home.
