The Cyprus Sustainable Tourism Initiative (CSTI) is proud to be the first organization in Cyprus to officially join the Global Tourism Plastics Initiative led by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO), in collaboration with the Ellen MacArthur Foundation.
As a signatory of the Global Tourism Plastics Initiative, we endorse the common vision to address the root causes of plastic pollution.
We commit to eliminate the plastic items we don’t need; innovate so all plastics we do need are designed to be safely reused, recycled, or composted; and circulate everything we use to keep it in the economy and out of the environment.
- Encouraging its member hotels and other tourism enterprises to join the Global Tourism Plastics Initiative and build synergies with initiatives such as «Keep our Sand and Sea Plastic Free », « BeMed » and «Plastic Waste Free Islands »
- Advising and communicating successes to member hotels and tourism enterprises by sharing information on their upcoming workshops, seminars and awareness campaigns addressing plastic pollution;
- Reporting annually on progress.
