Home  >  Responsible Tourism Award


In support of the Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development declared by the United Nations, Fundación InterMundial, with the assistance of FITUR and the Instituto Tecnológico Hotelero  [ITH], has created a Responsible Tourism Award to acknowledge commitment by tourism companies working towards the development and activation of tourism that promotes environmentally and economically responsible practices, with a caring attitude towards local populations.

For tourism to be responsible it must in effect reinvest profits generated into those local populations, promoting awareness and respect for the environment and for the society that welcomes the tourism, with a bias towards sustainable economic growth.

This award is open to all companies exhibiting at FITUR which have been working to benefit responsible tourism in the last 2 years, either by implementing policies or taking specific operational measures or through customer oriented actions.

There are 3 award categories, according to the different sectors a candidate company may belong to. The 2018 winners are:

  • Hotel and Catering (accommodation, food & beverage and related services):
    Meliá Hotels International
  • Transport (means of transport, airports, ports and miscellaneous):

  • Tourism products and services (incentives and conferences, tour operators, travel agents, leisure and health, etc.):
