The Skål International Sustainable Tourism Awards have been giving recognition and highlighting best practices to entities in the tourism industry for the last 21 years.

As an Affiliate Member of the World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO) since 1984, we are honoured that from this year onwards, both organisations have joined forces to give a greater dimension to these awards.
Biosphere© and the Responsible Tourism Institute continue to collaborate with Skål International since 2019. This year, they have enhanced their support and will award the "Skål Biosphere Sustainable Special Award" to each category winner. Previously, only one out of all the winners was selected for this award. The prize consists of a free one-year subscription to the new Biosphere Sustainable platform.
This 100% online tool allows the creation of personalized Sustainability Plans for continuous improvement and recognition of any company's efforts in sustainable development, involving employees and connecting with customers. Instead of completing a static questionnaire, Biosphere Sustainable helps to improve sustainability management by selecting from more than 400 sustainable activities and actions, linked to the 169 goals of the 2030 Agenda, those that best suit the resources of each entity, with the possibility of even adding new sustainable activities explicitly created for the company itself.
