Description

Demand for sustainable tourism has been on the rise, and with it came exaggerated sustainability claims – also known as “greenwashing”. This policy brief addresses the issue by examining the use of environmental certifications to address greenwashing and of accreditation in regulating these certifications. It also attempts to look at the possible role APEC can play in this.
