Charter Award Ceremony 2013 in the European Parliament, Brussels (B)

5 new tour operators involved in the European Charter for Sustainable Tourism

Posted: 25th March 2015

In 2012 and 2013, IPAMAC, the Association of Natural Parks of the Massif Central, conducted an experiment to develop the part III of the European Charter for Sustainable Tourism intended for tour operators. This methodology has been officially recognized and validated by EUROPARC on 6 November  2013 at the European Parliament.

As a result of this recognition, the French section of EUROPARC hold a meeting last december with a Joint Commission composed of state representatives, Protected Areas, tour operators and consumers  in order to assess the applications of five tour operators willing to get engaged with the Charter.

Consequently, the 5 following tour operators have obtained the part III approval of the Charter:

  1. Escapeo
  2. Sud France
  3. Place Voyage
  4. Cevennes Evasion
  5. Destination Merveille

This brings currently to 12 the number of tour operators involved in the process and we wish them a warm welcome among our network!
