The Objective

Given the growing concern for the world's natural and cultural resources, the Tourism for Tomorrow Awards are particularly important as they highlight industry leaders in responsible tourism, allowing the wider industry to learn from these best practice examples.

The WTTC’s Tourism for Tomorrow Awards aim to recognise best practices in sustainable tourism within the travel and tourism industry worldwide.

The Impact

An independent panel of judges, including some of the world's most authoritative experts on sustainable development, and a stringent application process involving site visits by these experts, has earned the Tourism for Tomorrow Awards, growing levels of respect among key audiences – including industry, government and international media.

The Tourism for Tomorrow Awards focus on four key categories: Destination Stewardship Award, Conservation Award, Community Benefit Award and the Global Tourism Business Award. Each year, winners and finalists are honoured at a special ceremony during the Global Travel and Tourism Summit, one of the highest profile events in the industry.

TreadRight’s support encouraged the sharing of best practice among tourism operators, promoted sustainability throughout the industry and helped to raise awareness about the environmental and cultural challenges faced by destinations and communities internationally.
