Sustainability

The ATTA’s mission is to empower a global travel community to deliver experiences that protect natural and cultural capital while creating shared economic value. Our events, which bring together our vibrant, diverse community periodically throughout the year, are important to achieving our mission. As part of our commitment to sustainable tourism, our Events Sustainability Policy, adapted from the Global Sustainable Tourism Criteria strives to:

  • Maximize social and economic benefits to the local community and minimize negative impacts
  • Maximize benefits to cultural heritage and minimize negative impacts
  • Maximize benefits to the environment and minimize negative impacts

In our agreements with event host partners, we collaborate to align the ATTA community's values and goals with that of the destination’s in order to purchase locally, conserve water, reduce plastic use, avoid food waste, and limit energy consumption and transport within the context of each event.
