Minimum Standards for Sustainability
The purpose of this project is to investigate how a simple set of minimum environmental and social standards can be incorporated within the quality review and become part of the quality standards to which hotels must comply. This will assist Cyprus in integrating sustainability principles consistently across the tourism industry. It will help hotels to operate more efficiently, fairly and cost effectively, helping hotels to progress towards some of the standards required for a number of different certification schemes, such as Travelife (supported by UK Tour Operators). Furthermore, it will also serve as a unique marketing tool for the CTO.
