Committed to Sustainable Tourism: the eco-stakeholders
Faced with the need to offer tourist services that take into account the economy of resources, a reasoned development as well as a good knowledge of the richness of the territory, Cévennes Tourisme is developing its label “Engagé(e)s Tourisme Durable” to complement the brand “Esprit Parc” which applies only on the territory of the Cévennes National Park.
The objective of this label
The objective is to bring together these professionals and to offer you a network of actors sharing common values.
Universalism:Understanding, esteem, tolerance of opinion and protection of the well-being of all and nature
Transparency:To fight against greenwashing, accept to reveal oneself by displaying quantified data and carrying out concrete and verifiable actions
As well as more personal values such as:
Respect for traditions
For local agricultural producers, not to use genetically modified organisms in their production.
The professionals involved in this approach have been audited through 5 axes:
Respect for the environment
Attachment to the territory
Social and solidarity approach
3 levels of commitment
Depending on the results of the audit
This is the first level: the provider has proven its commitment. Nevertheless, it can still implement additional actions to become more sustainable.
Beyond the minimum required, the provider implements enough actions to show a real involvement in sustainability. However, there is room for improvement.
The provider has demonstrated a very important commitment to sustainable tourism through a large number of actions carried out within its establishment.
