Given the multifaceted nature and complexity, it is clear: that sustainability cannot be achieved overnight. Instead, it is a long and continuous process of transformation that requires thought and cooperation from all those involved. That is why we at DER Touristik DMC network are working with our service providers, in industry initiatives and together with civil society on sustainable further developments and improvements. Over recent years, we have implemented many initiatives and projects to actively shape more sustainable tourism in all areas of our business. More: DER Touristik Foundation e.V.
Our DMCs are members of Travelife. That provides us access to Travelife’s expertise and resources, and we benefit in terms of certifying our own DMCs. Currently, we have started the process to work step by step towards complying with international sustainability standards.
