Sustainable Tourism Assessments for Destinations

Beyond Certification

Not every tourism destination is ready for or interested in certification. GreenStep provides meaningful options for measuring sustainability performance, identifying gaps, setting goals, creating action plans, and accessing support, even if certification isn’t a priority.

The assessments below utilize our internationally credible GreenStep Sustainable Tourism Standard, which has been developed based upon the Global Sustainable Tourism Council destination criteria and UN World Tourism Organization Indicators for Sustainable Tourism Destinations. This ensures that our criteria help tourism destinations assess their performance against global best practices for sustainable tourism, while covering all 17 of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. 

Choose Your Assessment

Free Sustainability Score

Our free Sustainability Score will let your tourism destination work through each of the Sustainable Tourism Destination criteria. Once you submit your responses,  you’ll receive a scorecard that shows your overall Sustainability Score, and your results in each category.

To access the full report and see how you scored on each answer to build a more detailed action plan, choose the Sustainability Lens option.

Sustainability Lens Assessment

Gain rapid insight into how your tourism destination is performing. Work through the criteria and submit your responses. We will calculate your score provide you with a summary scorecard, as well as a full report that identifies how you scored on each answer, along with the top recommended actions for improvement.
 
This will provide a baseline snapshot allowing you to easily see where you’re doing well and where you have an opportunity to improve, so that you may build an action plan to improve your sustainability performance or to get ready for certification.

Sustainability Diagnosis

Receive a customized sustainability action plan for your destination and a one-on-one consultation with one of our Sustainable Tourism assessors. First, work through the Sustainable Tourism Destination criteria and submit your answers. We will calculate your score provide you with a scorecard and report that identifies how you did on each answer. We will then invite you to submit a copy of your destination plan or any other strategy documents, so that we can understand and become familiar with your goals.
 
Once reviewed, we’ll schedule a web meeting with your team to gain insight into your key drivers around sustainability and review the results of your report. Following the web-meeting, we’ll create a customized report and action plan to help you improve your sustainability performance (and score), in a way that directly aligns with your destination strategy and goals.
