The Guide presents a comprehensive set of instruments for governments, ranging from planning regulations to economic instruments and the application of certification and indicators. It also sets out 12 aims for sustainable tourism and their implications for policy, and describes the collaborative structures and strategies that are needed at a national and local level.
The document begins with an introduction that reviews the economic, environmental and social impacts of tourism, as well as the main business reasons for addressing those impacts. Sections 1 through 5 then present ways in which tour operators can integrate the principles of CSR and sustainable development into all areas of their business, including internal management, product development and management, supply chain
management, relations with customers and co-operation with destinations.
The report reviews the strengths and weaknesses of the tools and channels available to promote and distribute sustainable
tourism products. The distribution and promotion channels chosen were destination management organisations and tourist
boards, tour operators, guidebooks, media, certification schemes, travel fairs, internet retailers and consumer organisations.
