Lusa - Business News - Portugal: Azores confident of certification as a sustainable tourist destination




Ponta Delgada, Portugal, Oct. 8, 2019 (Lusa) – The Azores regional secretary for energy, environment and tourism on Tuesday said that the regional government was working hard so that by the end of the year" the region could be certified as a sustainable tourist destination.
"We are working hard to make this possible," Marta Guerreiro said, adding that an audit of the certifying entity is expected later this month.
The head of tourism in the Azores archipelago was speaking to journalists after a meeting in Ponta Delgada of the Advisory Committee for the Sustainability of the Azores Tourist Destination.
This committee, which met on Tuesday for the first time, aims to monitor, analyse, debate, issue opinions and make recommendations on the certification process, on the implementation of planning, management and monitoring tools, as well as monitor the activity of the Sustainability Management Structure of the Azores Tourist Destination.
As part of this certification process, the Azores already have the bronze status of 'EarthCheck', an entity that certifies sustainable tourist destinations.
Regarding the audit, the regional secretary of Tourism said that it will evaluate an enormous set of indicators in relation to the region that have been collected in relation to the last three years and that range from environmental issues, but also social issues such as unemployment rates or safety issues, energy that will be analysed in the first phase in office.
Later, the auditors will be present on three islands for field visits to infrastructure and contacts with entrepreneurs.
Marta Guerreiro said that on Tuesday an action plan was presented to partners that contained a series of very practical measures, a document that is available online and a tool that identifies and defines the measures to be implemented in the short, medium and long term.
Guerreiro added that throughout this process a vast set of indicators has been collected regarding sustainability criteria, which are not only environmental, but also social, economic and cultural, a huge set of initiatives, since the Sustainability Primer, which has more than 80 subscribers, actions in schools and working groups per island.
Marta Guerreiro highlighted two major areas of importance for the Azores to obtain this certification, the first is a question of responsibility, underlining the responsibility for the fantastic environmental and cultural legacy of the archipelago.
"It is also an excellent opportunity because it places us and positions us as a region that wants to promote itself in the world as a reference in terms of sustainability," she said.
