Support the global mapping of tourism initiatives on sustainable consumption and production

One Planet - Sustainable Tourism: Portfolio of Work

Portfolio

The Portfolio of Work is a tool for members (Lead, Co-leads, MAC members and Partners) to include new and ongoing initiatives and activities under the umbrella of the programme, given their potential to advance sustainable consumption and production (SCP) in the tourism sector.

The engagement of programme members with the Portfolio has increased progressively since the One Planet - Sustainable Tourism programme started pioneering this mechanism in 2015 to aggregate the efforts of its members towards shared goals. Overall, a total of over 90 actors representing 65% of the total members (from 16 actors in 2015) have linked over 390 activities implemented in 2015, 2016 and 2017 to the programme resulting in a Portfolio value of over USD 25 million.[1]

One Planet - Sustainable Tourism programmeThe main focus of activities reported has been outreach and communication, followed by training and the production of knowledge and technical tools and the implementation of projects. Some examples are the Conference on Sustainable Tourism in SIDS held in the Seychelles (SSTF); trainings on sustainable practices by GSTC and PATA involving Asian countries and businesses; publications such as the Handbook “Destination: a circular tourism economy” for South Baltic countries (CRT); and tools like the Business Optimizer targeting French SMEs (CCI);  projects such as My Green Butler piloting in United Arab Emirates among other destinations (ICRT) or Tourism Tracer in Australia (University of Tasmania); monitoring instruments such as the Indicators of the Sustainable Tourism Zone of the Greater Caribbean (ACS) or commitments like the ITP Goals for the hotel industry.
