The Cyprus Sustainable Tourism Initiative (CSTI) was established in 2006, with the goal to promote the development of sustainable approach to tourism in Cyprus through:
- Sensible preservation, conservation and protection of the environment and the prudent use of natural resources;
- Reduction of the impact of our carbon footprint as a result of all our activities related to tourism;
- Improvement of the conditions of life in socially and economically disadvantage communities due to tourism;
- Promotion of sustainable means of achieving economic growth and regeneration;
- Research and education
Sustainable development is development that “meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.”
Sustainable Tourism is good for business and is the key to the future. The number of consumers who are demanding a more sustainable and caring world has increased exponentially over the last few years.
