Client: Europen Centre for Eco Agro Tourism (ECEAT)

When: November 2010 – November 2013Subject: Sustainability in tourism can only be achieved if tourism suppliers, tour operators and Eco-label collaborate with each other. European tour operator associations recently introduced a sustainable management and assessment system among their members, called Travelife. This, in combination with the introduction of the EU Eco-label for accommodations provides a breaking opportunity to implement joint approaches and actions between the travel sector and EU sustainability instruments.

The INTOUR project aims to integrate the voluntary environmental and certification instruments of the EU in the travel industry. The commitment of 11 major European travel associations and leading tour operators guarantees an effective way to increase the share of “sustainable products” within the tourism market. The market led approach ensures a European wide implementation of sustainability standards and tools among 12.000 hotels. This will increase the amount of EU Eco-label/ Travelife certified hotels all over Europe. Specific emphasis is put on 3 pilot destinations; Turkey, Austria and Italy. The contracted hotels of tour operators are motivated towards certification through a common approach by tour operators, the EU Eco-label competent bodies and if possible local certification schemes. In Turkey, Alanya is the pilot destination and the coordination is carried out by ALTSO and TRIADA.

Their accommodations are stimulated to introduce ‘Travelife’, an international sustainability system developed by the sector for the sector.

For Turkey, the 2010 aim was to identify and bring together key stakeholders and hotels from major tourism destinations for meetings on why and how to implement sustainability principles into accommodation businesses. The meetings that were organised in Istanbul in September and in Antalya and Alanya in November, also got the interest from other relevant stakeholders like the Turkish government, the private sector and non-governmental organisations for giving input for future projects to tackle the identified bottle necks in sustainability. The project is implemented by ANVR. TRIADA is responsible for the organisation of the meetings and communication in Turkey. This project and the INTOUR project will be integrated from 2011 onwards.
