itb berlin csr

Honouring German’s reputation as responsible travellers, ITB Berlin has in the last years successfully established itself as an important platforms for Corporate Social Responsibility in tourism, considering responsibility as an integrated concept for tourism development. 

Accordingly, the programme includes a very complete range of events related to CSR along the fair time-span, that is, from Wednesday to Sunday.  In fact, ITB has commited to use its position to “actively encourage research and science and to engage in a dialogue with companies in their efforts to create economically, socially and ecologically responsible tourism products and services”.

Many important people in Responsible Tourism are attending as speakers to ITB this year, representing organisations as  The International Ecotourism Society (TIES), The National Geographic Society, Sustainable Travel international, Rainforest Alliance, Adventure Travel Trade Association, UNESCO and many other big players withing the tourism sector.

We would like to highlight the event Sustainable tourism certification programs – are there too many?  A very justified title as sustainability has become a  mainstream concept it’s increasingly difficult to keep track of all certification programs and labels. The high profile of the speakers from public and private sectores, promise an interesting event.

We remind you that ITB and The blue yonder are organising the so called “RT Clinics” during the trade visitors days, where experts share their experiences in responsible and sustainable tourism (More details here).
