About GSTC

The Global Sustainable Tourism Council (GSTC) sets and governs global sustainability standards, known as the GSTC Criteria. There are two different criteria: Destination Criteria for public policy makers and destination managers, and Industry Criteria for hotels and tour operators.

GSTC encourages destinations that develop tourism and follow sustainability practices in their management to become GSTC members and to apply GSTC Destination Criteria by being certified with the help of a GSTC-approved certification body.

Sustainability studies continue in Izmir

İzmir joined the Green Cities program of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) in early 2019. İzmir Green City Action Plan (GCAP) aims to identify and address priority environmental challenges and to create projects with a vision that will provide a green future for the city. It was designed to help achieve the vision of a green Izmir with 46 action proposals including infrastructure investments, policy measures, capacity building and advocacy.

Izmir Metropolitan Municipality voluntarily committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions and increasing climate resilience by participating in the Agreement of Mayors (CoM) in 2020, preparing and implementing a Sustainable Energy and Climate Action Plan (SECAP).
The Izmir Global Climate Community, a collective focused on advancing Izmir's mission of becoming a Climate Independent and Smart City to combat the global climate crisis, was also established last May.
