Global Code of Ethics for Tourism

All of the “Geoota Travel” staff understands the importance of sustainable tourism, and we support our clients to make a positive impact while visiting lovely Egypt. 
We fully know of the significance of maintaining our environment clean and well-cared for, in a world filled with factors like greenhouse gases in our atmosphere. 
As a fundamental frame of reference for responsible and sustainable tourism, the Global Code of Ethics for Tourism (GCET) is a comprehensive set of principles designed to guide key-players in tourism development. Addressed to governments, the travel industry, communities, and tourists alike, it aims to help maximize the sector’s benefits while minimizing its potentially negative impact on the environment, cultural heritage, and societies across the globe. 
Adopted in 1999 by the General Assembly of the World Tourism Organization, its acknowledgment by the United Nations two years later expressly encouraged UNWTO to promote the effective follow-up of its provisions. Although not legally binding, the Code features a voluntary implementation mechanism through its recognition of the role of the World Committee on Tourism Ethics (WCTE), to which stakeholders may refer matters concerning the application and interpretation of the document.
