Our industry is increasingly aware of the shared responsibility on us all to protect the planet, our communities and cultural heritage for future generations.
SP Sustain provides certification for travel organisations who have begun their sustainability journey and are nearing – or at – the point where they are confident their practices meet globally-recognised standards for sustainability in tourism.
For those who are looking for guidance on how to develop a strategy, or wish to start measuring their impact, we provide support and advice through our consultancy service, recommending experts to help in specific areas if required.

What type of organisations can be certified?
We operate globally and can certify almost any travel related business including:
- Tour Operators
- Travel providers
- Hotels and other accommodation types
We can also support you to audit your own supply chains (accommodation, transportation and activities & excursions suppliers) if these organisations do not have certification in place.
