WHAT IS BIOSPHERE?
The Responsible Tourism Institute (RTI) is an independent organization with an international presence that has been promoting, for more than 20 years, responsible tourism at the international level, helping all stakeholders in the tourism sector to develop a new way of traveling and getting to know our Planet.
It is an affiliate member of the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) and a founding member of the Global Sustainable Tourism Council (GSTC).
In addition, it has had a Memorandum of Understanding with the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).
Through the Responsible Tourism System (RTS), the RTI promotes sustainability from a global and inclusive perspective.
Focusing on the measures that the tourism sector should and can take to achieve a sustainable, inclusive tourism that fights climate change.
From Barcelona Art of Travel, we work in continuous improvement offering sustainable routes minimizing the impact through the carbon calculator to be able to offer visitors, congress participants and tourists in general the compensation in the carbon footprint “0”.
The growing emission of greenhouse gases associated with industrial development has caused a complicated situation whose solution is in everyone’s hands.
Not only governments have the capacity to reduce emissions through international commitments, but other levels can also play an important role in mitigating the effects of climate change. For example, in the organization of events.
Knowing in detail the event´s emissions, or any action that is developed, will allow to know the necessary steps to reduce and compensate the impact generated in nature.
Obtaining correct, efficient and realistic calculations will allow us to make decisions that are sustainable with the land to compensate the impact by paying a percentage of the expenditure to social aid companies.
