About us


Sustainable Travel Ireland provides membership, training and certification for the entire Irish travel industry. Sustainable Travel Ireland is the only certification body in Ireland to hold standards recognised by the UN initiated Global Sustainable Tourism Council (GSTC).


We have been helping businesses to develop their sustainable practices for over 10 years now.  Founded in 2009, Sustainable Travel Ireland previously Ecotourism Ireland, came from a ground-breaking project called Greenbox in in the north-west of Ireland.  Greenbox, which ran from 2006-2009, highlighted the best of what the region had to offer while ensuring the regions heritage and environment were preserved for this and future generations.
