What we think about Global Sustainability
Each of our ITB team members is supporting our efforts to create awareness about the UN Sustainable Development Goals – as we all believe that they are effective guidelines!
We need to create better places to live to be able to invite people to visit.
Responsible & sustainable tourism can be of great help to create these places in the destinations.”
What are the consequences of our decisions?
We are socially responsible
As the leading trade show for the global travel industry ITB Berlin is also a driving force for corporate social responsibility. Ecological and social responsibility is a substantial task for the future and a prerequisite for long-term success, not just economically speaking.
ITB Berlin itself is committed to human rights, to the fight against sexual exploitation of children and women in tourism, to social justice and to climate, environmental and animal protection.
We’re all pulling together
In order to make a lasting difference, holistic tourism concepts and a joint commitment are needed. This is why ITB Berlin uses its key position in the market to promote the dialogue and the players in the tourism value chain - tourism companies, research institutions and non-profit organisations.
Together with many partners from all over the world ITB Berlin implements and supports numerous projects in the field of Responsible Tourism.
Together for sustainable tourism!
