UNEP

The Tourism Program of the Technology, Industry and Economy Division (DTIE), of the United Nations Program for the Environment (UNEP), has the mission of ensuring that the conservation, through the management and the sustainable use of natural and cultural resources, as well as of the environments created by man, are an integral part of tourism development. For such, UNEP/DTIE works through partnerships that include the private sector, aiming at supporting the integration of the sustainable production and consumption in tourism.

The environment and the social-cultural aspects constitute important assets for the touristic industry, and therefore, the preservation of the rich and diverse natural resources of Brazil is fundamental for the sustainable development of tourism in the country.

Today’s environmental agenda has been focusing on qualifying people and companies so that they become active multipliers of the sustainable and egalitarian development, and it has recently brought to the avant-garde the effects of climate changes in the ecosystems and communities, and their consequences in the whole world. The touristic industry would not be an exception. The hotel owners can contribute a lot, with the reduction of the impacts of their activities in greenhouse effect and with the awareness that the guests and the communities are essential for the change in attitude, aiming at sustainable consumption and production standards.

We invite you to participate with us, during your vacations or on your businesses, at home or at work, so that, together, we may enjoy a much safer and more prosperous future. Each and every contribution to build a healthy environment is valuable.
