For the tourism industry to be sustainable – environmentally, socially and economically, we must ensure tourism businesses are financially successful in the longer term, protect and enhance the environment on which tourism businesses depend, maintain and enhance support from local communities and ensure our customers have outstanding experiences with all their tourism activities.
