Sustainability in the Caribbean Tourism Industry

Recent research has proven that today’s tourists are concerned with environmental and social responsibility in the management practices of their destinations. According to data collected by the Centre on Ecotourism and Sustainable Development (CESD) and the International Ecotourism Society (TIES), “it is important to the vast majority of [tourists] that their trip not damage local ecosystems. They are interested in patronising hotels that are committed to protecting the local environment, and increasingly view local environmental and social stewardship as a responsibility of the businesses they support.” According to additional research on tourism demand published by the International Labour Organisation (ILO), “Sustainable Tourism is the paradigm of the future, the basis for attraction as well as a determining factor of the destinations’ competitiveness. The adoption of Quality Norms and Environmental Sustainability Certification is driven by National Programmes and is increasingly influenced by international markets. Such is the growth of regional standardisation.”
