The Global Sustainable Tourism Council (GSTC) has accepted Northflash as a full member. Together with many other international members such as destinations, hotels, tour operators and others, Northflash will continue to work to promote sustainable tourism.


“We are very pleased and proud that the Global Sustainable Tourism Council (GSTC) has accepted our application and accepted Northflash as an active and full member,” says Peter Reelfs, founder and owner of Northflash Sustainable Destination Services. “Our goal is to strengthen sustainable tourism locally but also through the knowledge and experience of the many international members of the GSTC,” Peter added.


The GSTC is a nonprofit organization that is recognized by the United Nations and sets and manages the global standards for sustainable development in the travel and tourism sector for professionals and governments.


The standards developed and continuously improved by the GSTC and its members define the globally valid and recognized criteria for sustainable tourism. These criteria are directed towards hotels, tour operators and destinations. These criteria are developed specifically for these areas. They are basis for numerous globally recognised certification bodies for sustainable tourism.


The standrads developed by the GSTC enjoy the highest reputation worldwide and a tourism operation certified on the basis of these criteria or a GTSC-certified destination is recognised as being sustainable.


Northflash has made it its mission to make the GSTC standards even better known among its business partners and to provide active support. One step along this path is for example an active cooperation with Green Destinations, a certification body accredited by the GSTC, which supports destinations on their way to more sustainability. Northflash is a preferred partner and auditor of Green Destinations in Scandinavia.
