EarthCheck Sustainable Travel and Tourism

EarthCheck Certification is designed for organisations within the Travel and Tourism industry and provides a framework for achieving sustainability through environmental and social performance.


An organisation is benchmarked against best practice levels for similar businesses around the world. The benchmarking data and other sustainability management criteria are then verified through the EarthCheck Certification Audit Programme.

Once you have achieved Benchmarking status, EarthCheck will initiate the scheduling of a local auditor to complete your certification audit. GCS is approved by EarthCheck to conduct Certification Audits to the EarthCheck company Standard.

You can also contact an auditor before you begin to discuss what you need to do to prepare for certification. If you would like to find out more about the process, please contact GCS and we would be happy to meet with you.
