Accommodating Green has been involved in developing sustainable tourism strategies and partnerships in various international destinations. Here are some examples of the types of projects we work on.
Greening of Pride Toronto
Accommodating Green is working in conjunction with the Icarus Foundation to green Pride Toronto. This three year project, which is funded by the Ontario Trillium Foundation includes working with Pride staff, volunteers, festival goers and suppliers to integrate sustainability into all practices. The festival, which is one of the biggest in Canada, will be working towards becoming carbon neutral and zero waste by 2015.
The Development of a Multi-Stakeholder Sustainable Tourism Partnership in Sanya, China
Accommodating Green conducted a study in Sanya, China to examine the level of environmental management in the tourist accommodation industry. The study examined the motivational, organizational and impeding factors that affect the implementation of sustainable practices in the tourism industry. Following the study, Accommodating Green developed a series of multi-stakeholder workshops to discuss how to increase the level of environmental management in the accommodation industry. These workshops were the catalyst to developing a sustainable tourism partnership in Sanya, China to ensure the support and continuous momentum from the study. The partnership provides the required resources to the industry and supports sustainability in a rapidly growing Chinese tourism destination.
Sustainable Tourism Strategy For Gili Trawangan, Indonesia
Accommodating Green has been involved with the Gili Trawangan Ecotrust to develop a sustainable tourism strategy for the island of Gili Trawangan in Indonesia. The strategy was developed from an extensive environmental assessment and stakeholder consultation process that was conducted on the island. The strategy consisted of a waste management plan including composting and recycling; public health strategy; sewage and water management; public education; the implementation of an eco tax; coral reef regeneration, and the development of a multi stakeholder island committee to facilitate future decisions on planning, building and environmental management.
