What's Involved

The requirements of the TSC are to:

  • Have a sustainability plan with goals for all twelve Commitments
  • Make measurable progress towards these goals
  • Embed sustainability into business systems, processes and plans
  • Provide an annual return with an update on progress (by responding to a TIA survey)
  • Communicate with communities and visitors about sustainability efforts

Businesses are not expected to do this alone. Our dedicated Sustainability Advocates are available to support you. The TSC is set up to provide support and guidance to make at least some sustainability actions easy and achievable. We also encourage collaboration within regions and sector groups, to tackle some of the Commitments together.

The important thing is for every business to be taking action towards sustainability. It all makes a difference. And many, if not all, of the actions make good business sense, resulting in cost savings and more efficiently run businesses which will appeal to the needs and preferences of visitors in future.
