Working with the travel industry
Tourism concern works with tour operators, travel agents and volunteering organisations that are committed to fairly traded and ethical tourism. We have developed guidelines and principles for the industry, explain what fair trade tourism is all about, and offer practical advice on how to make your business more ethical.
The business case for ethical tourism
Taking the fairtrade and human rights approach to tourism actually makes economic sense as well as making sure tourism activities do not have adverse impacts on local people.
Become an ethical tour operator
Our Ethical Tour Operators Group (ETOG) is formed by a group of small to medium size tour operators and travel agents that strive to improve their Ethical and Responsible Tourism practices.
Ethical volunteering standards
Volunteer organisations need to demonstrate that they have attained a recognised level of responsibility in the way they recruit volunteers, find placements and manage the volunteering process.
