Mallorca joins UNWTO's network of sustainable tourism observatories

The island of Mallorca is the latest destination to join the World Tourism Organization's International Network of Sustainable Tourism Observatories (INSTO).

The Observatory's goal is to monitor the environmental, social and economic impact of tourism to facilitate evidence-based decision making.

Key objectives include reducing the overall carbon footprint as well as promoting local gastronomy.

"As a mature destination, the Observatory's work will generate more and better evidence of the economic, environmental and social impacts that tourism has on the destination. This will further facilitate the decision-making process," said UNWTO Secretary-General Zurab Pololikashvili.

The Mallorca Sustainable Tourism Observatory is managed by the Fundación Mallorca Turismo, part of Mallorca´s Island Council, and is supported by the local and national public and private sector.

"The Mallorca Sustainable Tourism Observatory will play a fundamental role in dealing with issues like job creation, public health and safety, human rights, quality education and inequalities," said Catalina Cladera Crespí, President of the Consell de Mallorca.

Mallorca becomes the third Observatory in Spain, after Navarre and the Canary Islands, and the 31st globally.
