Biosphere,
tourism sustainability

Sustainable tourism essentially involves the development of territories in such a way that the three fundamental axes that characterize them: culture, the environment and the socio-economic sphere receive a positive impact on tourism activity. For this reason, the Consorci de Turisme del Baix Llobregat has decided to take a step forward and provide the different entities involved in tourism with the tools and guidelines to follow in order for this positive development to take place.

The Biosphere Certificate is an initiative created by the Instituto de Turismo Responsable (ITR). It is a seal of international recognition that certifies the good practices of those tourism companies and services that are certified. Under the 17 goals of sustainable development of the ONU, the BIOSPHERE certificate provides those companies that adhere to the commitment, guidelines, improvement plans, workshops, training and a personalized service to carry out the actions and good practices that require commitment.

In 2017, the Diputació de Barcelona implemented the Biosphere sustainable tourism certification through 3 tourism brands: Costa de Barcelona, ​​Paisatges de Barcelona and Pirineus de Barcelona, ​​initiatives that have given way to raising awareness and vindicating sustainability as to one of the pillars within the tourist activity.

Currently in the Baix Llobregat a company has this certification, the Cripta Gaudí of the Colònia Güell.
