The measurement of the 17 Sustainable Development Objectives

The Responsible Tourism Institute is an independent organization whose objective is the implementation of actions and programs of sustainable development in the tourism sector. For this purpose, RTI created and developed the Responsible Tourism System (RTS), recognized under the brand BIOSPHERE RESPONSIBLE TOURISM, based on standards approved at International Conferences sponsored by UNESCO, UNWTO and with the support of the Secretary of State for Tourism from Spain.

The RTI, through Biosphere, measures the contribution of the tourism sector to the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), the World Charter for Sustainable Tourism +20 and the guidelines of the Paris Climate Change Conference. Currently the RTI maintains a Memorandum of Understanding with UNESCO and is affiliated to the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO).

The year 2017 can and must be the last step in integrating, in a balanced way, the different objectives and goals that Tourism must achieve in order to promote a Sustainable Human Development.

THE #TOURISM17 INITIATIVE

THE #TOURISM17 INITIATIVE

As a fundamental part of this necessary awareness on sustainable tourism, the Responsible Tourism Institute launches the #TOURISM17 campaign, an initiative that aims to promote sustainability not as a strategic element of tourism agents, but as a new model of tourism development on which to bet decisively.

THE BIOSPHERE SEAL

THE BIOSPHERE SEAL

The Biosphere Seal was created and developed by the Responsible Tourism Institute at the request of the 1995 World Conference on Sustainable Tourism, a milestone promoted by the United Nations through UNESCO and under the auspices of the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) and the leading associated international organisations and related programmes, such as the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), the MAB Programme (Man and the Biosphere), the World Heritage Centre, the European Commission and the United Nations Division for Sustainable Development. Biosphere is the only Seal to incorporate the UN 17 Sustainable Development Goals and the main guidelines of the Paris Climate Summit.
