Sustainability Leaders is dedicated to telling the stories of leaders in sustainable tourism around the world.

Our mission is to motivate and inspire travel and tourism professionals to benefit from sustainability as strategy, and to help tourism businesses and destinations communicate their sustainability initiatives to global audiences.

As travellers, tourism businesses, organizations and service providers, we are all in this together. By following examples of leaders in the field of sustainable tourism and environmental best practice, it is much easier to put strategies in place. It is certainly easier than having to start from scratch.

We realize that while there is a lot of technical information out there on how to green your hotel, there is a need to share the insights and experiences of sustainable tourism thinkers, shakers and doers – those out there taking a lead and making a difference.

The purpose of our website Sustainability-Leaders.com  is:

  • To feature the best examples (hotels, tours and destinations) of sustainability in travel and tourism
  • To tell the stories of sustainable tourism thinkers, shakers and doers around the world
  •  To inspire and encourage tourism professionals to embrace sustainability and  Not just because it’s the smart thing to do economically, but because we as travellers expect healthy, quality accommodation and experiences. Just “get on with it”!

And because travel and tourism is a people business, we focus on those persons taking a lead – helping their country, destination and community.
