Seychelles Sustainable Tourism Label

The Seychelles archipelago belongs to one of the major biodiversity hotspots in the world. Approximately 47% of the country’s land mass, and some 228 square-km of its ocean territory, are under some form of protected status. However, Seychelles’ biodiversity remains at risk from a variety of human induced pressures; this makes the conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity of vital importance for the country’s sustainable development.

The Seychelles Sustainable Tourism Label is a voluntary, user-friendly sustainable tourism certification system designed to inspire more efficient and sustainable ways of doing business. The purpose of the Label is to provide a set of standards to guide sustainability improvements in the tourism industry in Seychelles. The mission of the SSTL is to encourage tourism enterprises in Seychelles to mainstream sustainability practices into their business operations to safeguard the biodiversity and culture of Seychelles.
