What are the consequences of our decisions?
We are socially responsible
As the World’s Leading Travel Trade Show, ITB Berlin is also a generator of inspiration for Corporate Social Responsibility. Ecological and social responsibility is an essential task for the future and a requirement for long-term success – not only in the commercial sense.
ITB Berlin itself is committed to human rights, social justice, the fight against the sexual exploitation of women and children, and climate, environmental and animal protection.
We’re all pulling together
Integrated touristic concepts and shared commitment are required in order to be able to achieve sustainable change. That’s why ITB Berlin uses its key position on the market to promote dialogue and networking among many different actors – tourism companies, research institutes and non-profit organizations.
Together with many partners from all over the world, ITB Berlin carries out and supports numerous projects in the area of Responsible Tourism all along the tourism supply chain – for example, the new World Legacy Awards play an outstanding role.
Here you can find an overview of our CSR Partners and Projects.

Respect childrens´ richts - in tourism too!
New Short Video of Naturefriends International & ECPAT Austria published
In many countries, children have to work in tourism – often long hours or even at night. In some destinations it is common that children are sexually exploited by tourists. Even child trafficking can take place in tourism destinations. This exploitation clearly violates international law. How can tour operators contribute to the protection of children? What can tourists do? The short video “Respect childrens´ rights – in tourism too!” provides answers to these questions.
The video is available in German with English and French subtitles on the NFI YouTube channel.
