Committed to responsible tourism
Welcome to TourCert - Your expert for certification and consulting in sustainable tourism and corporate responsibility
You are a tour operator, travel agency, hotel or destination? You want to offer exceptional travel packages to your clients and stand out from the crowd?
Why don’t you make the value of your company visible and become part of our powerful community?
How can TourCert support you in your daily business?
TourCert has developed a unique coaching and certification system for tourism, which focuses on the entire touristic value chain in a sustainable way. Specifically, this means that our TourCert experts support you on your way to more corporate social responsibility – from the first concept to the final certification – to become a pioneer in sustainability.
Our coaching services help to identify your company’s optimisation potential. This in turn creates various benefits, for example the reduction of energy costs, an increase in the loyalty of your customers and employees or the ability to develop and provide innovative sustainable tourism experiences. As a member of our TourCert community you will also benefit from our marketing activities and networking events.
To get certified with the TourCert label, you have to meet different social, ecological, and reporting requirements and integrate them into your core business. But don’t worry, our coaches will guide you through all stages of the certification process by means of coaching, trainings and various online tools. In the end, an independent Certification Council of experts will make the final certification decision.
An essential aspect of the TourCert system is that all members of the TourCert community undertake to continuously improve their own sustainability performance. In order to ensure compliance and to meet our high quality standards, our experts will re-assess your sustainability performance every two to three years after the initial certification.
TourCert Check – the easy start
If you are still unsure whether a full certification is right for you, we have the perfect solution: our TourCert Check. TourCert Check allows you an easy start into the world of corporate social responsibility and sustainable tourism. The simple self-assessment system gives you a quick overview of your company’s sustainability performance and helps you to take the first measures.
Our secret? Empowerment!
In contrast to many other certification systems, the TourCert system is a holistic management- and reporting system. It’s not just about ticking a checklist but rather developing a custom-made master plan for your company on how to assume corporate responsibility to meet our sustainability standards. One key to success? Empowerment. By sharing our knowledge and skills – for example by training CSR managers who transfer their knowledge to their colleagues – we make sure that sustainability is not just cheap talk but implemented and lived in your company.
Become part of our TourCert community along with over 200 certified and TourCert Check awarded companies and destinations all over the world, more than 800 participants in consultations, seminars and online trainings, as well as over 250 trained CSR managers!
Together we create a different way of tourism with lasting quality for everybody! Let’s do this!
