Climate Action Certification for Tourism Operators
The Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority (GBRMPA) encourages you to seek independent recognition of the actions you are taking in response to climate change.
Ecotourism Australia, in collaboration with the GBRMPA and the South Australian Tourism Commission, has developed the Climate Action Certification Program. It is designed for all sectors of the tourism industry and for aligned businesses both large and small.
By adopting Climate Action Certification you will receive practical assistance in equipping your operation for both the impacts of climate change and to reduce your contribution to greenhouse gas production.
There are three levels of certification available:
|Businesses have incorporated strategic climate change responses across all relevant levels of business planning and operations. They are measuring and auditing their carbon footprint via a creditable system and have undertaken an advanced level of adaptation, emissions reduction and offsetting and are working towards becoming carbon neutral.|
|Businesses have undertaken a set of adaptation and emissions reduction and are auditing and measuring their carbon footprint.|
|Businesses have undertaken a set of adaptation and emissions reduction actions but are not necessarily measuring their carbon footprint.|
